Eponymous MacAllister Vineyard Red Blend 2012
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley|
This vintage of Eponymous Red Wine immediately pleases with complex aromas hinting of cassis, spicy oak notes, and raspberries. Held to the light one sees a rich, purple- scarlet color that hints at the broad palette these grapes afford the winemaker. Solid body and firm, well-balanced structure with the flavors following the aromas and added nuances of chocolate and rhubarb. This wine's elegance and refinement starts with the lush entry and continues through the mid-palate and on to a long, pleasing finish.
The grapes come from a single vineyard, MacAllister Vineyard, near the ridge of the Mayacamas Range on the Sonoma side of Mt. Veeder. This is a spectacular sloping site with multiple exposures and well drained, low fertility soil
