(Santa Lucia Highlands, 14.4%, $72, 436 cases, to be released in October 2009) An attractively nuanced and complex nose offers up aromas of red pinot, cranberry and cherry trimmed in a subtle array of spice hints that continue onto the supple, round and naturally sweet medium weight flavors that possess good persistence and very good balance on the lingering and dusty finish. This is not overly complex but other than a subtle touch of warmth, this appears to have the balance to reward a few years in the cellar to possibly add depth in time.

Deep red. Intensely perfumed nose offers mineral-driven red berries, cola, sandalwood and woodsmoke. Densely packed red and dark berry flavors are surprisingly lively, with zesty mineral and cherry skin notes adding verve. The mineral character gains power on the finish, which is impressively spicy and very long. This would be great with a Moroccan-spiced lamb or duck dish.
