The 2009 REDS is a Great Leap Forward. It's just as friendly and versatile as
its predecessors. But 2009 was a very special vintage in Lodi, with a longer
growing season and attendant complete ripening. And the aromas are fuller, too,
with a rich and focused core of white pepper, red plum, wild berry and a touch
of licorice spice. Its robust, warm flavors linger pleasantly, inviting another
taste, glass, bottle, case, pallet.
