"Best of the Best", blend exhibiting classic structure and Seghesio style symmetry, Complex bouquet of dark fruit and briery spice, mocha toffee and bread-out-of-the-oven nuance. Strength of fruit: blackberry essence and cherry pie. Spice rack mélange of cloves, anise and cinnamon. Good tannic ripeness balanced by ripe fruit and rich acidity Full-bodied, layered and worthy of aging.( Ted Seghesio)
Vintage 2006 was our latest vintage since 1981. A late bud break followed by virtually daily rain in April set the vines behind normal. Fortunately, the tightest bloom window in a decade set a more uniform crop. A summer heat wave was moderated by a mild August and September enabling the grapes to develop optimum flavors and soft ripe tannins.
