2010 Adastra Vineyard, Los Carneros
Extended hang time produced a wine filled with blueberry, cherry, and blackberry fruit aromas mixed with hints of vanilla, anise, and a slight mineral quality. The wine is round, soft, and lovely on entry, intense and palate-coating in the mouth and filled with dense flavors of red fruit, licorice, sassafras, and cherry. The round, voluptuous texture is the perfect foil for the structured tannin and acid that create the substantial framework. This is an intense, concentrated wine with a finish that is mouthwatering, long, and rich. 2010 Adastra is an exceptional wine from an exceptional vineyard.
