#71 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010
A nice deep inhale of spice and blackberries with a touch of chocolate. Pure fruit flavors lavishly roll across the tongue with true complexity and a nod toward the soil - tender flavors of earth, minerality, and an essence of myrrh. It is rich and succulent on the palate with a long dark cherry finish. I've not said this before... this is my favorite ROCO Willamette Valley to date.
