Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) The nose is generous with cassis, plum, vanilla, dusty spice, cedar, tobacco, clove and toffee. The palate is lush, juicy and balanced, with underlying tannins that add grip to the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Typically briary and savory with the signature of the Santa Ynez Valley cherry and plum flavors, the wine is also unusually soft and lush with a velvety texture on the palate. Serve this wine with grilled meats, roasted red peppers and beans, or Santa Ynez style barbeque.
