Asti Winery Cellar No. 8, North Coast, California
If I recall correctly, this was a very friendly wine that wasn't too complex (tobacco, leather) but stood out well against the lamb course(s) I had. It also had a medium finish with berry notes, slight tang but not sour.
(I can't remember too much more as my memory's becoming fuzzy and I'm cautious of getting all the wines I ordered mixed up.)
