(2011 Vintage) Deep ruby. Heady scents of raspberry, cherry-cola, floral oil, Asian spices and vanilla. Juicy and penetrating, with superb inner-mouth perfume to its sweet red fruit and candied rose flavors. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with excellent clarity, breadth and persistence.
International Wine CellarRating: 87/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 126, May/June 2006 ($32; from a blend of four vineyards, two of which are in Green Valley) Good deep red. Aromas of raspberry, strawberry and cinnamon. Supple, spicy and aromatic in the mouth, with enticing sweetness but slightly drying oak tannins. Could use a bit more vibrancy.
