Winemaker's Notes

Ruby-red color. Aromas of red fruit and spices. A balanced wine. Barrel-aged 6 months. An ideal wine for daily consumption.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep violet color. Brighter and more lithe than the 2009 version, offering fresh red berry and floral aromas and flavors and showing a touch of youthful jamminess. Lively and focused, with very good back-end clarity and lingering spiciness. Still very young but I find this delicious now."
