Happy Canyon Vineyards ‘Barrack Brand’ 2006


Ripe purple plum, black currant and cherry fruit with a dusty earthiness of forest woods, roasted chicory and cocoa. Hints of black pepper and cardamom. A full-flavored Merlot blend structured with ample Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. From the hot inland side of the Santa Ynez Valley. Well defined, big bodied with a silky texture and a lasting finish. The linebacker turned actor — successfully so. A very good wine. (Reviewed 9/26/11)
