Outer quote mark (12.8% alcohol; 100% from Lemmon-Chabot; harvested on October 2 and 3): Medium red with a browning rim. Slightly high-toned aromas of redcurrant, smoke, tobacco and balsamic vinegar. Smooth, sweet and fine-grained, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the red berry and tobacco flavors and lifting the finish. A bit tart but full of life. This wine was made from very ripe fruit. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2015)
