Winemaker's Notes

The wine is a rich yet brilliant garnet color with a lively display of Bing cherries, Damson plums, sage and crushed leaves on the nose. A lush palate with focused acidity offers soft and supple tannins combined with hints of vanilla, cured meat, cassis and red licorice.

Critical Acclaim

"Warm molasses-spice notes mark this wine's dark cherry flavors. It gains definition after a day of air, the flavors more delineated. A ripe style for miso-glazed salmon.
Best Buy"
89 Points

"Silky, with floral, strawberry and raspberry flavors at a moderate level, lingering on the refined finish. Drink now through 2015. 2,000 cases made."
