2010 Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands Nebbiolo

Vinfied by Ryan McAlister. Unlabeled. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Shy aromas of brandy-soaked cherries, briar and rose petals. Tasty array of mid weight red cherry fruit with some Pinot character and a long finish offering cherry skin and dried herb flavors. The fruit is elevated by fresh acidity but is somewhat buried in muscular tannins. Needs a good steak or ossobuco to tame the tannins. Reviewed September 5, 2013
