It is the 10 year anniversary of @AltaMariaWine so seemed like a good night to open this up.

White chocolate, slight truffles, cherry, red licorice, and heat. Earth tones in the mouth, nice acidity, and a slightly sharp finish. Very nice wine, just feel it lacks focus in the mouth and comes across as alcoholic.
