Core Ground Around 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"A new offering, the 2005 Ground Around is from both the Alta Mesa and Laetitia vineyards (in the Santa Barbara Highlands and Edna Valley respectively). A dark ruby hue is accompanied by aromas of sweet cherries, loamy soil, earth, and underbrush. Abundant fruit is presented in a savory, round, generously-endowed, interesting style. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. These are all creative, individualistic wines that reveal considerable soul and character. One has to admire the wacky art on the label as well as the non-conformist blends. Most important from a consumer's perspective, the wines are very interesting and deliver loads of pleasure. All of them possess terrific aromatics." Robert Parker's wine Advocate #172

Lovely wine blended from cool climate and warm climate fruit. Good acidity. Needs time to let the cherry and blackberry fruit settle down some and the spice come forward, but it should be excellent in 2-3 years.
