Tessa Marie Coquette 2005
Tessa Marie Coquette 2005, is a VERY SMALL LOT wine. It comes from Ephiphany Cellars in Santa Maria, California. And Ephiphany is an off-shoot from Fess Parker. But what is amazing is that Tessa Marie is a teenager!!! Yes, a 16 or 17 year old teenager makes this wine-and for that reason alone it's damn good! She's doing what I would LOVE to do!! She's going to make some kick-ass wines as she gets older. I do believe you can only gets this wine in the Ephiphany Cellars tasting room in Los Olivos. I wish I had bought more than one!
I'm sure I should have let this wine store a bit longer-it was quite young. It's a blend: 70% Sangiovese and 30% Syrah. But very drinkable and tasty. It wasn't hard to drink, had a very nice berry taste and no bitter after taste!
