#77 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
Deep scarlet color. Out of the gate, aromas of cinnamon, cranberry and a hint of ginger tease for a taste. The palate turns into Christmas in the mouth... sweet baking spices and tart berries, even a hint of roasted meat. Throughout the experience a plush weight fills the mouth. The merging of flavors, viscosity and a lively acidity round out the long, sinuous finish.
