Wine Profile
Ratings
91 Points. Stephen Tanzer's International WIne Cellar. Deep, bright red.  Suave, perfumed aromas of raspberry, cinnamon and fresh flowers.  Sappy and intense on the palate, offering sweet red fruit and rose pastille flavors lifted by tangy acidity.  Finishes bright and precise, with the floral note echoing with real authority.
Vineyard Notes
The 2009 year began with a cold winter which led to some frost damage. Bud break was very even and the remainder of the year was marked by mild temperatures and healthy, even vine growth. An intense heat wave occurred in early September causing many grapes to ripen simultaneously. The harvest in the Arroyo Grande Valley was slightly larger than average and the quality of the fruit was exceptional with concentrated, intense flavors.
