Clendenen Family Vineyards 2004 Nebbiolo Reserva

The Nebbiolo vines which produced the grapes for this wine were planted in 1994 on land leased from Bien Nacido Vineyard. The wine spent 6 years in barrel. The color is deep with some amber and the perfume is woodsy and floral with some spice. The wine has great texture with woodsy cedary spice tinged flavors accented by a citrus tinged crispness on the finish. Only 300 cases were made and the wine is unusual to be sure but it is a very nice drink and would go very well with a spicy tomato meat based pastaξ
