2005 Anam Cara Cellars Nicholas Estate Reserve Chehalem Mountians Willamette Valley

13.7% alc., 213 cases, $42. A blend of a few special barrels from the estate vineyard. · Noticeably bigger and fruitier than the above wine featuring blackberry and black cherry flavors with hints of spice and smoke. A little more fullness on the palate and a little more chewy. Beautifully balanced. This wine is still a bit shy and needs a few years in the cellar to show all of its charms.
