Cola, red cherry, thyme, green peppercorn, iron and chocolate hints show on the nose of this bottling from an extreme coastal property near Pismo. The palate is herbal in character, with thyme, sage, oregano and pine forest seasonings that overlay its bright cherry fruit. Already mature, there's tons of life left in this wine.
