VINTAGE RESERVE - Santa Ynez Valley

VINTAGE RESERVE - Santa Ynez Valley Wine Details

Description: Our Vintage Reserve is a traditional Bordeaux-style blend crafted from only the finest vintages, when superior blocks of estate fruit mature to the highest caliber. The 2002 vintage is only our 12th bottling Vintage Reserve since 1977. It begins with inviting aromas of blackberry and plum with accents of fine tobacco. The palate unfolds with deep layers of cassis, blueberry, mocha, anise and roast coffee—a complexity of flavor that is attributable to the inclusion of five classic Bordeaux varietals. A long, smooth finish is supported by firm, polished tannins, ensuring that this wine will reward careful cellaring for at least the next 10 years.
