Oh man. A bit reductive right out, but blows off quick. Beautiful light palate with wonderful acidity to carry. Light smoky edge but good red fruit at the top. Saline, and good texture in the middle. Silky tannins with an angular structure that suggests whole cluster without the phenolic load. Unbeatable at this price.

Young but full of complexity. Great value.

The location of this wine is off. This is a Santa Cruz Mountains AVA wine, not central coast.
