Here kitty-kitty!  The “hedonistic sex kitten” returns!  Similar to the 2002, this year’s rendition is composed of 70% grenache, 23% mourvèdre (both from Unti Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley), and 7% Russian River Valley syrah.  Each component was fermented separately with the final blend assembled the following summer.  Bottled unfiltered.

Tasting Note: Medium to medium-dark ruby.  Hi-toned aromas of cherry and pomegranate with hints of iron, mace, and carpaccio.  On the palate, full-bodied and creamy with all kinds of delicious, exotic flavors from the mourvèdre component.  Very decadent!  Drink from late 2006 through 2011.
