Winemaker's Notes

The color is bright with deep crimson and some amber tints. The aroma has a striking berry character with richness of fruit due to a hot summer, low yields and a cool, dry harvest. This, along with strong smoky oak tones, highlights the intense nature of the Penley style.

The palate has rich, sweet berry flavors and strong oak and grape tannins to balance and integrate 2002's strong flavors.

A complex wine that shows a deep and ripe palate. Fruit flavors dominate the style this year. Soft fine oak tannins. Best defined as medium to full bodied wine from an outstanding low yielding year.
