Moraga Estate, Red Blend, Bel Air CA, 2012
The 2012 growing season gave us an incredibly beautiful, complex wine with both power and elegance. The aroma is sensual and perfumed, a mix of spicy cinnamon, sandalwood, and burnished leather combined with fruit notes of blueberry, bright cassis, and blackberry pie. The entry is cloaked with soft, round tannins that seductively coat the entire palate and seamlessly glide into layered dark cherry and boysenberry concentrate supplemented with anise and a streak of minerality. This wine has the heart of a ballerina, built on graceful strength. It finishes on a high note – enough acidity to sing, extraordinary concentration, and great persistence.
