Sineann's Peter Rosback is the winemaker for this particular Lachini bottling, and has been through seven vintages. This is the best yet, perhaps a function of a maturing vineyard and a great year. Lush and textural, it dances among flavors of pretty cherry-berry fruit, lightly whipped chocolate and accents of sandalwood and spice. It gains strength through the finish, lingering gracefully.
