Critical Acclaim

"Bright red-ruby. Musky dried fruits and flowers on the nose, with fresher raspberry, orange zest and pepper emerging with aeration. Chewy and solidly built, with penetrating acidity energizing the flavors of rose petal and crushed rock. Not yet especially complex but this wine's intensity and clarity suggest it will reward a few years of patience."
