DESCRIPTION
The 2008 is textbook for this high quality vintage. Its ruby/garnet color leads to big, heady aromas of grilled meats, flowers, spice, and florest floor. In the mouth, blackberries, black cherries, mint and framboise all come forth in this rich, hedonistic wine. It finishes with soft tannins.

    ♦ Prime rib
    ♦ Porterhouse steak

Wine Advocate Issue 177
“a Cotes du Rhone-like style of Santa Barbara red with a deep ruby color, a sweet nose of black raspberries, cherries, a hint of underbrush, and lots of spice and pepper…full-bodied, silky textured, and delicious for drinking over the next several years.” (90 points)
