2009 San Andreas Red
Bill Brosseau's Winemaker Notes:
Dark red color. A little shy and reserved, this Red blend opens up nicely with some aeration. Notes of blackberry, boysenberry, ripe cherry, and currant are paired nicely with cloves, anise, and vanilla bean. Upon taste, the berry, cherry, and anise flavors are framed by an expansive mid-palate, firm tannins, and bright acidity. The depth of tannin, acidity, and multi-layered finish lend this to another classic, long-lived version of the Blackridge line-up. Drink now through 2020.
