Region: Uco Valley
The cool 2008 growing season produced austere, linear wines; serious, with good acidity and definitions. Aromas of varnish and wood that lift the nose up and mixed with terse black fruit. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with mature flavors mixing fruit, leather, and spices. Quite tasty and with good acidity, supple but austere, with good length.
