Once again this holds the most in reserve across all the bottlings. There's a floral note that gives the wine an initial prettiness that transcends the vintage. The gloves come off after that initial note though as the wine veers toward densely packed black fruit. Crème de cassis, grilled bread, graphite and river rock spring from the glass to balance the fruit. For all the talk about fruit concentration in this vintage, it is nice to see more earthy, varietally driven traits driving the balance on this wine. This is to be expected given its source. It almost has an old world quality to the aromatic given all the savory-ness. The lifted aromatic accompanied by the fruit density gives the wine a refreshing feel that provides both satisfying density and the desire to take another sip. As Calistogans ourselves, it has always given us great pleasure to offer such a solid wine from our hometown AVA.
