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!

I didn't see a year on the bottle label? However, I believe it was from 2005 or so.. This bottle was given to me by the owner Marlowe after playing classical guitar at the LC Winery for one of his events. I was saving this Super Tuscan Wyland Edition for a special occasion and decided to open the bottle for Christmas Eve and other positive vibes that are in the air today! I would highly recommend this wine!
