(From 2013 Vintage) This beautiful wine offers a simply outstanding array of complex aromas, opening with fresh raspberry, black cherry preserves, strawberry rhubarb pie, rose petals, and violets. Traces of dried figs, Forest Nameko mushrooms, anise, and cloves balance the spectrum. Elegant fresh and dried fruit flavors liberally coat the palate while silky, seductive tannins carry through to a savory, persistent finish.
This wine is an example of how the many individual vineyard nuances express themselves in harmony with one another … creating a more complex and intriguing wine. This is a deep, rich and intense wine, with a wonderful array of fruit flavors centered on a complex core of dark cherry, wild berry and plum. The lavish, spicy oak elements compliment and add depth … but never overpower the tremendous palate of fruit. The finish is long, clean and refreshing, thanks to its generous acidity.
