2007 Night Watch
A critic favorite that expresses silky tannins and sophistication unheard of for Zin and Petite Sirah . . . It simply does not get much better.
Whether entranced by the flames of a crackling fire or immersed in conversation with friends, the versatile 2007 Sextant “Night Watch” complements the warmth of the occasion. Deep ruby in color, aromas of blackberries, cherry, violets, and a hint of leather invite you to savor the juicy fruits inundated with blackcurrants, ripe plums, and raspberries as they explode on the palate. Mild pepper notes and blueberries are enhanced by silky tannins that unite the extravagant fruit components of this wine together delivering a lavish and integrated finish. A truly elegant blend!
