Bouquet of freshly-picked roses (or rose water). Deep garnet in color. Perky. "Jumpy" mouthful that refuses to sit (This is a positive experience). Much closer to a Tuscan Sangiovese that many of the other Californias I've had. Good work on the restrained fruit. Surprisingly complex for a 2009. No comparison to Mosby's acid bomb. Perfect balance of fruit and tannin. I drank a second bottle and got a little heat going down.
