Powerful aromas of cherry, cassis and dark chocolate are lifted by a peppery element that gains strength with air. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering pliant dark fruit and chewing tobacco flavors and a sweet vanilla quality. The spicy note repeats on a long, sappy finish framed by supple, late-arriving tannins.
McPrice 'Mac' Myers became a complete food and wine geek in his early twenties. This led him to frequent sojourns to the Central Coast, where he became a quick study of the burgeoning wine scene. Mac's first vintage was 2002. His enthusiasm for the local vineyards in Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County was matched only by the lure of the Rhone Valley. Mac's own wines received overnight praise from the wine press-at-large. With a keen eye on the future of California vineyards and a respectful nod to the Old World, Mac continues to impress as one of the most progressive and even-handed winemakers on the Central Coast.
