WA95+

Three of the four barrels of this cuvée some from a very famous vineyard on the Sonoma Coast whose identity, regrettably, Sarah and Chris are not allowed to disclose. Well, at least we’re not telling.  The Wine Advocate loved its “pronounced notes of crushed black cherries, fresh raspberries and pomegranate with touches of roses, menthol, black soil and fungi. Medium-bodied and delicately crafted with a firm frame of very ripe, very fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, the red fruit and earthy layers give way to a good, long, perfumed finish.” – The Wine Advocate
