You will probably be tired of hearing this, but this could easily be my favorite vintage of this yet. This time, we experimented by also producing one barrel of whole-cluster pressed Syrah to see how it might fit (or not). I am thrilled with how well it harmonizes with the Zinfandel and Pinot Noir. That typical perfume of our dry rosé, rose-petal, guava, grapefruit…solid, yet light on its feet…focused like a pink laser-beam. I think it will drink perfectly this summer and thru summer 2011. We made less of this than usual, so it will disappear even more rapidly than the 2008 did.
