Winemaker's Notes

A dark scarlet color with deep rose tinted highlights speaks to the depth of this 2009 vintage, while the brightness of the wine conveys its youthful character. The nose is spicy and very berry, with a hint of sandalwood mingling with Bing and black cherry aromas that waft from the glass. On the palate, red rhubarb and black plum skin reminders showcase the balanced acidity and tannin structure of the wine. Concentrated black raspberry and mulberry flavors are interlaced with a subtle earthiness – minerality from the Sta. Rita Hills marrying with warm loamy notes from the Santa Ynez Valley – read more...and then leaving a lasting impression of raspberry and raw almonds at last sip. (hide)
