This is the probably the best "Works" wine ever bottled by Scarborough Winery, as it consists of more Cabernet Sauvignon than in previous vintages and in a great year like 2012, even the "Press" wine—which typically is wine that might not be as good that the "Free-run" (wine that comes directly out of fermentation without pressing it). So in good vintages, like 2012, this wine is very difficult to beat, especially for the price. This wine will go fast, so make sure you get some! Only 212 cases produced. $28.00
This southern Rhone-style red is comprised of vibrant raspberry Grenache, the meaty, earthy, complex Mourvedre, along with the strawberry & gamy Syrah. Dedicated to the long harvest hours Scarborough staff works after midnight, it will charm you by the supple flavors and the win you over with the complex yet harmonious balance of which was aged for 16 months in oversized (Puncheons) barrels. Only 225 cases produced. $29.00
"In the glass, deep, dark bluish-red hues can be seen with a band of ruby on the rim. Uplifted aromatics of ripe blackberries, mulled raspberries, acacia flowers, toasty oak, and herbal notes hit the nose in a pronounced way. Offering up robust flavors during the approach, the mid palate is exposed to an unadulterated array of crushed berries, dark chocolate, black fruits, and a tinge of creamy espresso. Finishing with principle, the glossy tannins are in alignment for immediate enjoyment or some time in the cellar too."

"The allure of Pinot Noir is its unpredictability – you never really know what you're going to get. There is a light mouth feel, high acidity and tart red fruit flavors. It's enigmatic, but not sweet. It's fruit balanced by earth and leather. It is spice and evergreen. There is a lot of space between the characteristic notes that speak of Pinot Noir like it used to be."
