...shows rich complexity on the nose, with aromas of red cherries, smoked pork, tight graphite, a hint of maple and then violets, lilacs and other purple flowers. The flavors are soft with red and purple fruit, but solidly seasoned with anise, black pepper and spicy herbs, with all elements extremely well integrated.

Earthy, dark and red cherry with resinous herbs – pine or redwood, rosemary and bay. Lots of concentration through the mid palate without heaviness. Mouth-watering acidity, fine-grained, taut tannins, and a rock-salt-crunch finish. Lots of length. Distinctive.


United States, California, Central Coast

Central Coast AVA is a huge wine producing area that extends from Santa Barbara County in the south to San Francisco in the north. With more than 100,000 vineyard acres, it includes parts of six counties near the Pacific Ocean. Nearly 20 smaller AVAs lie within the Central Coast AVA. Central Coast earned appellation status in 1985. Included in the appellation are parts of the counties of Contra Costa, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz. Nearly every grape varietal grown in California is grown somewhere in the Central Coast AVA, though Chardonnay accounts for nearly 50% of the entire wine grape crop.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
