#33 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
Blau has a cherry purple glint and shows an interesting range of aromatic notes and complexity. Fresh and balanced, complex and fruity, with notes completely reflecting the terroir. This wine has a fresh finish, with a hint of spice and minerality.
"Dense yet lively, this expressive red shows morello cherry, floral, licorice and mineral flavors supported by light, firm tannins and fresh acidity. Mountain herb and smoke notes keep this from turning candied, but the sweet fruit lingers nicely. Drink now through 2016. 6,500 cases made."
