Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Glass-staining ruby. Vibrant raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by Asian spices and candied lavender. On the palate, sweet black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are energized by white pepper and spice nuances. The long, gently chewy finish features fine-grained tannins and lingering florality.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) Solid for the vintage, with a good core of anise, mulled plum, boysenberry and fig, all laced with sweet spice and roasted apple wood notes. The nicely rounded finish has ample length.
