Winemaker's Notes

This wine is intense, fruity and ripe with a beautiful color and deep nose. It is distinguised by its soft, juicy aromas, as well as its delicious structure. The finish is long and powerful, with a floral touch. This is a wine with energy and plenty of fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"This ripe, gentle red offers stylish cassis and linzer torte flavors laced with light toasty spice and a pretty incense note. Shows good fresh acidity as well."
89 Points

"Meaty and rich with juicy cherry extract, this is a full, generous red with some sex appeal. It's clean and saturated, but the oak is still dominant, needing several years of bottle age to meld with the fruit."
88 Points
