The wine has great depth and complexity with tremendous pepper spice balanced with intense savory fruit. This was named after Sonnie, Bob's mother and the matriarch of the family.
This is Bob Lindquist's reserve reserve from his new estate vineyard, planted in 2005. The selection, started in the vineyard then narrowed in the cellar, is aged in Ermitage barrels, 50 percent new. Whole-cluster spice cuts against the meatiness of the tannin, while the fruit has the transparency of red forest berries. It's tart, sanguine and saline, needing several years in bottle for the power of the structure to mellow. Collectors would be well served nabbing a six-pack of this wine.
