Wine Details





Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Cherry and raspberry aromas lead the charge, but as it airs out it becomes more raisiny and jammy smelling. The flavors are solid but distant, with simple red fruit, oak and barrel notes setting the pace. Highly drinkable and easygoing but not complex or elevated.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright tawny red in color, with an open nose of rich spice and fruit balanced by firm, subtle oak. The palate begins light and warm, but becomes increasingly serious with hints of mushroom and nuts, and balanced by clear acidity and soft tannins.
