Winemaker's Notes

A feminine, soft and delicately structured wine. Vibrant aromas of spices, orange peel, roses and cherries. Ripe and juicy flavors of cinnamon, spices, cherries, rose and orange rind. The mouthfeel is soft, with a warm-sweet impression. The finish is long with spices and well-integrated soft, silky and sweet tannins. Peak drinkability will be between 2004-2006. -Joe Dobbes, Winemaker
