Winemaker's Notes:

#79 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Deep garnet in color with a brilliant edge, the nose is voluptuous and broad with smoky notes at first glance that dissipate quickly into black cherry and raspberries, with lavender and rosemary herbal notes and a hint of licorice. The palate is surprisingly leaner on the attack, but broadens quickly with fine and round tannins, as the flamboyant fruit flavors explode on the palate. The finish is precise and direct, sustained by mineral notes and lingering fruit flavors in the style that is so classic of the Seven Springs Vineyard.
