Winemaker's Notes

This wine delivers some of the classic characteristics of this subtle, silky vintage. On the nose, red fruit like red raspberry, cherry, and strawberry dominate with warm brown spice undertones. The palate, though a bit tightly wound, supports these red fruits, with echoes of the brown spices and even a hint of mint to finish. With decanting, this wine will open up, revealing the beauty she will become with more time in the cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright cherry nose; crisp and juicy with tangy acidity and pure, lively style with a bracing, lively finish."
