The Westerly 2009 Panterra is a Bordeaux-style blend from the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Barbara County. All five of the Bordeaux red wine varietals were assembled for this special blend, with Merlot from the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara serving as the backbone.
Deeply garnet in color, the 2009 Panterra offers a precise, focused mix of dried berry, currant, and black cherry notes. This is a nicely balanced, smooth, lush, and layered wine with good structure, silky tannins, and rich fruit flavors that delight the palate. The complementing notes of dark cherry, ripe plum, spice, and earth make the Westerly 2009 Panterra an excellent choice for many food pairings.
