Winemaker's Notes:

"Ruby-red. Fresh cherry and blackberry aromas show good clarity and no earth or animal qualities. Lively red and dark berry flavors offer a zesty, focused personality. Impressively long, focused and taut for this price: one could spend five times as much and get less flavor and precision."
