Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County
The first thing to notice about this beautiful wine is the incredibly aromatic nose. It is filled with aromas of chocolate covered cherries, raspberry and strawberry with hints of floral notes such as lavender and orange zest. On the palate, the wine is perfectly balanced. The rich sweetness of the wine is nicely counterbalanced with great acid and soft, lush tannins. Candied orange zest and more fruit dance on the palate, making it the perfect ending to any meal.
Ilusión is made in the port style from half Syrah and half Zinfandel grapes and fortified with a splash of brandy.
50% Zinfandel, 50% Syrah, hand harvested
