Winemaker's Notes:

A potpourri of savory herbs and exotic "Chamisal spice" dance upon the nose and palate. Toasty oak and vanillins and red, slightly tart cherry fruit are deftly balanced by deeper, earthier tobacco, sarsaparilla and wild mushroom flavors which slowly and seamlessly give way to an elegantly long, textured finish.
My Notes:

About Domaine Alfred:

Domaine Alfred is a young winery that has successfully married the latest winemaking technology to the long-standing excellence of our historic Chamisal vineyard, the premier site of Edna Valley planted in 1972. Nestled at the foot of the Santa Lucia mountains, Chamisal vineyard is perfectly placed to take advantage of the cool, coastal climate and the variety of soils and aspects which make this area ideal for classic wine grapes.
