This bright, juicy red is packed with cherry and berry flavors, sweetened with vanilla and deepened with a touch of mountain herbs. The tannins are firm but light, the finish clean.
93 Points-Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate “Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a fragrant nose of mineral, spice box, kirsch, raspberry, and spring flower garden. Structured on the palate with excellent depth and concentration, it has layers of spicy fruit and terrific integration of oak, tannin, and acid. The wine has a long, pure finish. Although it can be drunk now, this hedonistically styled wine should evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2022.”
90 Points-Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar “Ruby-red. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by zesty minerality and fresh rose. Brisk, sharply focused redcurrant and strawberry flavors are supported by fine-grained tannins. Finishes with impressively pure, penetrating red fruit flavors and subtle spiciness. I really like this wine's understated character.”
