Laguna Canyon "Super Tuscan" 2005 wine review by (PB)
(NW) opened this wine on a recent trip to Boston. Made by "Wyland" the lable says it is a classic Tuscan blend yet I would not have pegged it as a Sangiovese in a thousand years.
I thought it was a Zinfandel or maybe Petite Sirah with a beautiful black cherry hue and ripe blackberry, plum and dark fudge foundations.
Palate: Robust, balanced, beautiful with nice big berry, blueberry and something that I couldn't pin down but was great. This was really a tasty treat and runs around $35 but its the kind of wine I think you have to find locally (California) so raise a glass when you can.
