2010, Williams Selyem Mistral Port 0,75 LUdsolgt
Complex aromas of blackberry cobbler and fig, with highlights of lavender and dried rose petals, soar from the glass. Maple syrup and elderberry notes further add to the interest on the nose. Blackberry flavors persist across the palate and mingle with anise, almond and toffee notes. A great conclusion to any meal!
Vista Verde Vineyard is located a couple miles southeast of Hollister, California, near the small town of Tres Pinos in San Benito County. This heavy limestone vineyard is separated into blocks that include clones such as Calera, Canada, and Pommard.
The 2010 vintage produced wines reflective of each individual vineyard site and appellation with concentrated aromas, rich fruit flavors, nicely balanced acidity and supple tannin structure. The hallmark of the 2010 vintage is one of extremes; between cool, early season temperatures and extreme late season heat, wines of tremendous character were made through careful attention to detail.
