Appellation: Sonoma Coast, Sonoma County
Rated 94 points by Stephen Tanzer`s International Wine Cellar: Deep red. Utterly compelling bouquet of fresh raspberry, wild strawberry, smoky minerals and fresh flowers. Deeply concentrated red fruit flavors are improbably fresh and focused. This manages to be both powerful and graceful, with slow-building spiciness adding complexity. Tannins creep in on the back end but don`t distract from the luscious fruit. This refused to let go of my palate.
