International Wine CellarDeep red. Musky cherry and plum scents are joined by underbrush, tobacco and pungent herbs. Fleshy dark fruit flavors are braced by gentle acidity and show bitter chocolate and licorice on the back. Finishes with a suave jolt of cassis and excellent length. This is the property of Brian Croser, long-time owner of Petaluma.
Wine Spectator"Distinctively spicy, with warm, earthy overtones to the beautifully framed currant, black cherry and nutmeg aromas and flavors. Impressive length to the finish, which is generous and harmonious against firm tannins. Needs time to gain some flesh, but should be a beauty. Best from 2008 through 2016. 1,400 cases made."
