Here’s what the wine press has to say:
94 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced - “Cranberry purple color meets a near-Burgundian nose. Beautiful high-toned red and blue fruits show up imminently with nuances of pomegranate tea, Asian spices, driftwood, blood orange, vanilla and scented acacia flowers. The palate is packed with red fruits and spice, with a very refined salinity up in the front palate which leads to a nice silky mouthfeel with a long persistent finish. This is an incredible value from a superb vintage that will drink well for the next few years. Drink now or cellar for the next 3-7 years.”
Pretty light ruby hues, with even coloration from the heart of the wine out to the glinting edge.
Bing cherry, raspberry, dried rose, summer forest, mixed spice, vanilla, chocolate, red currant, pomegranate and a hint of cured beef.
Cherry cobbler, cranberry, raspberry preserve, summer forest, baking spice, twigs, pomegranate, subtle white pepper and toasty oak.
Super long, with fruits that fade to reveal spice and other earthen flavors. Soft tannins give the wine a softy plush and gradually drying feel.
Enjoy this pretty wine with an herb roasted chicken, barbecued pork loin or cedar plank salmon.
