The richness and youth of this elegant wine is apparent in its deep, opaque ruby color. Restrained oak and intense blueberry, black cherry and mint characters dominate the aromas; on the juicy palate, rich layers of vibrant black cherry and plush blackberry fruit come to the fore. Oak stays in the background as a supporting player, adding complexity to the wine but allowing its classic Alexander Valley character to shine, in which rich, juicy fruit and structured, fine-grained tannins harmonize in a balanced duet. The lively finish carries the wine's balance through to a lingering conclusion. Overall, balance, elegance and harmony are the hallmarks of this wine. Approachable now, the wine will improve in bottle for the next five to eight years.
This wine I bought yesterday and did not want to put it down, Delish, Exept I paid 9.99 for it at a store, What a deal I see it cost way more here, No wonder There was only one bottle left" I wish I would have bought it !!! But I have never tried it sio it was a gamble to me, What a shame, I screwed up. I definetly will buy this again !!!
