Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red garnet. Aromas of rich dried plums, with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. Flavors of raspberries and cherries, with spicy notes of cinnamon followed by a long, rich finish.

In 2009 the windy, cool weather during flowering resulted in smaller and more concentrated fruit. The result is a rich, fruity wine, complemented by spice and vanilla from the oak aging.

About Estancia:

Estancia, based in Monterey, was founded in 1986. The name Estancia is roughly translated from the Spanish word for "estate," and emphasizes our conviction that the world's best wines capture the essence of their place of origin. At Estancia we control the process from the start—from the trials in our experimental vineyard blocks, to planting, harvesting, fermenting and aging the wines. We've built a winery that allows us to devote the same attention to detail in winemaking that we give to our grapes. We use open-top fermenters and small basket presses for our Pinot Noir and new red-wine fermentation tanks that are fit for the diverse blocks in our Paso Robles vineyards. It is this hands-on crafting of the wines, from grapes to bottle, that result in our superior wine quality.
