Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, dried figs, tobacco, raisins, cedar, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, chocolates, herbs, spices and black pepper.
Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, espresso, vanilla, spices, light earth, dark chocolates and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This 9 year old, from the great 2013 vintage, is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 3 hours in the decanter.
Another wonderful wine from the hands of Mike Smith. Rich, elegant, fruit forward and extracted.
Getting to be at its peak, but not there yet, although very enjoyable at this point. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.
Great by itself as a sipping wine, and will also pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

This was a big, rich, generous bottle of wine. Each sip was a mouth-filling cocktail of macerated red and black fruits with hints of vanilla and spice. Very supple! 39% Carignan, 26% Mataro, 17% Zinfandel, 11% Petite Sirah, 5% Alicante Bouchet, 2% Black Malvoisie. 5/18/22. — 7 months ago
Medium to dark garnet to the edge, light nose red plum and cherry. After good airing is pretty smooth, definite cherry on top with maybe some strawberry down below and of course red plum. Light tannins and mild acidity- quite nice on the lighter side of good Pinots. — 6 days ago

This is an amazing Roussanne/Viognier blend from Sanguis called Three Sketches of a Dream. 2014, released earlier this year. Highly recommend and indistinguishable from SQN. This has serious depth of flavor and acidity to keep it all together. The finish is long and enjoyable with honey and some citrus notes and maybe cantelope? Gorgeous wine. Serve at cellar temp and let her go. Hats off to Mattias and Elliot on another superb creation. — 21 days ago
