Nebbiolo SBC 2008
Santa Barbara County
Light brick and brilliant ruby in color with gorgeously transparent edges, a swirl produces a veritable bouquet of floral and fruit notes; rose petals, violets, soy and savory garden thyme. This wine is smooth and almost creamy on the palate, with a seamless mixture of acidity, tannin and structure that brings fresh fruit notes of raspberry and sour cherry. Reminders of cranberry sauce and a well-aged balsamic then mingle with cinnamon stick spice. The mid-palate is firm and the finish elegant. And the best news is that this wine is ready to drink now!
