Winemaker's Notes:

Medium dark ruby color. A soft scent of strawberries with a floral rose hint in the nose. Flavors of intense cranberry and red cherry fruit on the palate in a firm tannic structure. The finish is long and spicy. A great wine to watch develop with age as it softens and becomes more complex.
My Notes:

About Peachy Canyon:

Peachy Canyon is a small, family owned winery that has gained a reputation for their highly acclaimed Zinfandels, Cabernets and Merlots. Nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountains just six miles west of Paso Robles and 14 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, the winery exemplifies the contrasts of a region which is ideally suited for growing a premium red wine grape. Pastoral and peaceful on the one hand, the vines grown in this area must struggle to succeed in meager soils stressed by daytime temperatures that soar into the hundreds and nighttime temperatures that plunge into the forties. This results in small yields of intensely flavored grapes.
