Another excellent vintage from our vineyards in the Central Coast. The ripe aromas of cherry, raspberry, green tea, mocha and spice dominate the nose. This wine shows richer and broader tannins than the 2004 version, with a better overall concentration and depth of fruit. A long sweet cherry and silky oak finish complete this wine. Needs time to mature in the bottle.
"Medium red. Sexy, open-knit red berry and floral scents, with a subtle hint of anise. Suave, silky and bright, with energetic raspberry and wild strawberry flavors gently lifted by soft acids. Fills out on the finish, which displays impressive depth and lingering sweetness."
