Artesa Elements 2009
This wine is brimming with lively black currant, raspberry and blueberry enveloped in a spicy bouquet of cinnamon, clove, vanilla, nutmeg and faint hints of smoked meat. The flavor is true to the aromas and the texture is silky and supple. This wonderful blend of fruit, spice and silk dances and lingers in your mouth. The acid balance and slight dryness of the tannin on the finish indicate that this wine has the structure to age gracefully for several years.
Artesa makes some very classy wines. This is no different. Great nose and very soft on the palate with hints of earth.....You can smell and taste the simularities between this and the sister vineyard Ridgeline. Another great wine! Elements is a winner! Cheers!
