WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "Blueberry, sage and vanilla swirl into an admirable nose on this wine from a property far up the Santa Ynez River valley. There is distinct tar on the palate, like other wines from the property, with smashed black cherry fruit and tobacco herbaceousness present as well."
Winemakers Notes - "This beautifully balanced and complex wine offers a nose of red fruit with enticing forest floor and wet earth undertones. An explosive fruit entry delivers ripe blackberry/currant fruit intertwined with notes of lavender and bacon fat, leading to a long, lingering finish showing restrained tannins and highlights of sweet oak. A superb choice for rack of lamb. Dark and dense with ripe, fleshy notes of plum, blackberry and black currant; smooth with seductive hints of vanilla and spice; long, rich and harmonious. A year or two more will bring out its inner depth." 15.1% ABV.
