Winemaker Sherman Thacher Notes
This wine is clear, with a medium intense ruby core, fading to a pale ruby edge and water-white rim. Legs are medium and fast to form with faint saturation of color. On the nose, this wine is clean and developing. Aromas are complex and medium plus in intensity. They include Bing cherry, cranberry, dried cranberry, red currant, toffee, smoke, hibiscus tea, leather and oak spice. On the palate, this wine is dry. It has medium intense structural tannin, medium silky body, medium plus spicy alcohol and medium acid. The flavors are medium plus intense, and include cherry cola, dried cranberries, baking spice, cedar, tobacco, baked berry crisp, molasses and vanilla. The finish is long, and has lasting ripe berry flavors balanced by piqu ...more... ant alcohol and tannin. This wine is ready to drink, and will age for 3-4 years before becoming fully developed. awards Gold Medal Winner, 2009 Mid-State Fair Silver Medal Winner, 2010 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
