Huber Dornfelder Santa Rita Hills Santa Barbara County California Wine 2006

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

87 points. The aroma is just as dark, deep, and inky as the eyes lead you to expect. It’s full of blackberry jam, dark chocolate, and a faint woodsy quality, with a kiss of cinnamon and creamed honey coming up with a spin in the glass. Spicy and full of blackberry and blackcurrant preserves, the palate opens up strong but sophisticated. Hints of dried cherry, inkwell, and a powerful fruit skin component show around the edges, with a well defined streak of Concord grape jelly coming through on the finish. This is a nice, deep, and full bodied wine, with good expression and a very unique varietal characteristic.
