Savory aromas with high-tone mineral (read volcanic) notes, wild blueberry, lavender scented. Uplifting, juicy taste. Bright and ripe at the center, high-tone red and blue fruits, mineral notes, and some saline. Will soften in the sort term and continue to gain complexity for many years.
"Fresh and savory at once, with scents of rye flour and lees crosshatched with red cherry, this has a classic Eola–Amity Hills profile, with red-fruited elegance and a curt mineral close. The tone reflects the vintage: pristine fruit, fresh and brisk, lifted and finely wrought. It’s a wine built to age, and delicious now."
Wine & Spirits
"Ruby-red. Intense, spice-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry and potpourri, with a bright mineral overtone. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering an array of red fruit flavors and notes of spicecake and sassafras. Closes tangy and very long, with slow-building sweetness and gentle tannins adding shape."
International Wine Cellar
"Fresh and vibrant, offering depth without weight, with dark berry, plum and spice flavors that hint at savory sage and tobacco as the finish lingers effortlessly. "
