Winemaker, Ben Riggs and his team have produced a full and flavorsome wine, deep-hued with lifted aromatics and a structured but supple palate. Smooth, rich and generously loaded with mulberries, black cherries and spice on the palate, the finish is long lasting, delicious, dense and fruit-packed. With tannins enhancing the tastes and richness of food, this is a perfect red meat or pasta accompaniment.
"Saturated red. Sexy aromas of raspberry and cherry preserves, with lively Asian spice and floral qualities adding complexity. The floral note gains strength with air and carries onto the palate, which features sweet red berry flavors, strong mineral snap and silky texture. Sweet, energetic and focused on the impressively clean and long finish. This wine, which represents great bang for the buck, was raised almost completely in stainless steel, with only 10% of the juice seeing (new) French and American oak. "
