I found this bottle at Costco and thought it would be a good value. First, I love the Santa Rita Hills appellation. The weather changes here dramatically as you work your way from the coast to the eastern most part of the region, near Happy Canyon where they are making some fantastic Cabernet. West of the 101 you'll find the jewel of Pinotlandia on your way to Lompoc from the Buellton exit 246. That being said, this wine felt a bit over manipulated. Oak seemed to dominate the palate after the promising bouquet relinquished the spotlight. Hints of spice and subtle notes of sandalwood layered well, yet the fruit landed on deaf ears as it was lost in translation. A decent effort, yet far from what this region can offer in terms of vintages that represent works of staggering genius.


Winemaker's Notes:

Rich, concentrated, dark, black fruit opens to aromas of sandal wood and toasty oak. The palate displays blueberries, blackberries, marionberries and spicebox. This is a rich, fleshy wine held together with a solid backbone of silky tannins and firm natural acidity. It pairs beautifully with duck, turkey, grilled chicken and tuna or salmon. Alcohol 14.5%.
