(From 2009 Vintage) This wine is both elegant and intense, offering layered aromas of red raspberries, fresh Oregon strawberries, brown spice and cedar. Its aromas are reflected on a palate that speaks of purity and elegance, and is exceptionally balanced with silky tannins and a persistent finish.
(From 2007 Vintage) Bottle was not corked, but wine seemed to be aging poorly, tasting over-oxidized. Not as complex as it was a few years ago, with thinness and acidity dominating.
