Standing in the Sangiovese block at the Honea Vineyard, one can see the Eleven Oaks Vineyard just a few scant miles away in the Santa Ynez Valley’s “Alamo Pintado Corridor”, an area that is rapidly gaining recognition for the quality of Italian grape varietals. Selected Tuscan clones were grafted to the old vines of the steep, terraced hillside Eleven Oaks Vineyard, a high density vineyard farmed entirely by hand. The younger Honea Vineyard was planted specifically for Palmina to rootstock and Sangiovese clones ideal for the varietal and site. The 2005 release of Undici is the inaugural blend of these two complementary and unique locations.

Tasting Notes
Darker than the previous vintage, the 2005 Undici has a scarlet, cinnabar hue alight with ruby accents. A spicy nosegay of violet, plum, rose petal and cedar with a hint of menthol is unleashed by a swirl of the glass. The first sip foretells of layers of flavors, elegantly interlaced with bright acids and dusty baker’s cocoa tannins. Dried blueberry and raspberry notes mingle with red plums, currant and clove. The 2005 Undici is beautifully balanced with a firm, elegant texture and lingering finish replete with wild herbs and bittersweet mocha. We recommend decanting the wine prior to enjoying it with a meal, friends and family!
