Refugio Ranch 2011 Barbareno, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara County, CA
Vinous.com rating: 90..."Bright ruby. Pungent aromas of ripe dark fruits, fresh flowers and cola, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Fleshy and sweet on entry, then tighter and livelier in the mid-palate, offering vibrant, spice-accented blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of smokiness on the back half. The floral quality returns on the long, incisive finish, which is given shape by smooth, harmonious tannins.
