DuBrul is a rising star vineyard whose grapes have found their way into a dozen or more boutique winery bottlings; this is the first from Caterina. Tasty and sweetly scented with plum, cherry and red fruits, it's deceptively simple, a bit unfocused at first. Yet hours later, it has gathered itself together into a deeper, more satisfying wine. 208 cases made. —P.G.
