2007 Sanguis "Las Mujeres" Central Coast Red Blend (1.5L)

SKU #1274690 92 points James Suckling

 An unusual blend of Grenache and Syrah, with a splash of Roussanne and Viognier, this wine is massively rich in cherry and blackberry pie, caramelized oak, vanilla and cinnamon spice flavors. The addition of those few drops of white varieties brings brisk acidity and a tang of citrus and flowers.  (5/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Red Wine Las Mujeres is 68% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 4% Roussanne and 2% Viognier. It spent 40 months in French oak barrels prior to being bottled in February 2010. Las Mujeres is a pretty, soft wine laced with red fruit, spices, tobacco and mint. This is a relatively understated wine from this estate. Some of the more sensual, floral and spiced notes take on greater prominence as the wine sits in the glass. The balance and sense of proportion are both first rate. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (68% grenache, 26% syrah, 4% roussanne and 2% viognier): Deep purple with a bright rim. Sexy aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, violet and smoky Indian spices. Lush and creamy but vibrant, with very good clarity and lift to its black raspberry and mulberry flavors. Finishes long and sweet, with persistent florality and impressive vivacity. (JR)  (11/2011)

Wine Spectator

 Firm and complex, with loamy earth, dried berry, sage and cedar flavors presented in a tight package, ending with a graceful, spice- and tobacco-laced finish. Grenache, Syrah, Roussanne and Viognier. Drink now through 2019. (JL, Web-2012)

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Santa Maria/Santa Barbara

- Santa Maria and Santa Ynez make up the two AVAs of Santa Barbara County, an area known for its natural beauty and temperate climate. The best grape-growing areas, however, are located on the very coastal reaches of these two appellations, and are cooled by ever-present fog and ocean breezes (it is even cooler and foggier here than Carneros!). As expected, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir thrive while the more inland zones lay claim to Bordeaux varietals and some Rhône blends.
