This 2011 is a blend of two Dry Creek Valley vineyards: the Bevill/Hart vineyard contributes the intensely dark color and musky black currant notes, while the Molinari vineyard brings an intriguing leafy herbal note. The very cool growing season of the ‘11 vintage was at times reminiscent of this grape’s home in Bordeaux, and that comes through in the wine: less forward fruit, more structure, and a spectrum of flavors inflected towards a green spice. Medium-weight tannins lend weight to the wine, and will play nicely with savory dishes featuring green herbs such as rosemary or sage...think lamb shanks braised with rosemary and lavender, grilled sausage, or a savory stew.
