Laguna Canyon Winery "Wyland" Limited Edition Super Tuscan 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Big nose of sweet cherry, plum, leather, and lots of cinnamon and other spices

Round and rich on the palate

Wild red berries, maraschino cherries, and more spice on the finish

Friends brought this bottle back from a visit to the Laguna Beach, CA, area. It's a very small production wine that they enjoyed in the tasting room and wanted to share back home.

Crafted as a true "Super Tuscan" blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, this wine delivers Italian nuances and big, bold California layers. Here's a huge wine that's a true new world Super Tuscan. If you can find a bottle, it will run you about $35. Raise a glass!
