K&L Notes

This is the first release from Vine Hill Ranch, but its depth and complexity make this winery one to watch. The Phillips family have been farming the Ranch since 1959, and when the decided to start making wine from their fruit they turned to Françoise Peschon, who apprentinced at Bordeaux's Haut-Brion and was named the winemaker at the acclaimed Araujo Estate not long after she started there in 1993. The wine smells like crushed cocoa nib, forest floor, savory herbs and a generous amount of cassis fruit. On the palate the fruit is pure and refined, with hints of black truffle, with more garrigue, sage and chocolate flavors. Refined tannins and balancing acidity. Give the wine some air if you want to drink it now, or put in your cellar for a few years. It will only get better.
