($80; 95% cabernet sauvignon, from a cool site) Red-ruby with purple highlights. High-toned aromas of raspberry and black walnut. Supple, fat and sweet, but with surprising energy to the flavors. Finishes with tangy crushed fruit flavors, very good length and slightly edgy tannins. "The story of this wine is like a novel," said Schoener. For starters, the juice, a ripasso of cabernet, spent 60 days on the skins. In September of 2005, Schoener dumped both barrels of it over the skins of just-picked Hudson Vineyard syrah. You get the general idea: don't try this at home. The volatile acidity here is at the outer limits. Also tasted: 2004 Sandland Red Wine Duarte Vineyards California*.
