Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Bright purple. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, black raspberry, dried rose and minerals, with a smoky overtone. Juicy, incisive red fruit flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and gain sweetness with air. Fine-grained and admirably balanced, finishing with noteworthy clarity and lingering spiciness.

Expert Reviews
  • Tanzer
    Last vintage, this wine earned a 93 Point score from Josh Raynolds of Stephen Tanzer's IWC. More of the same this vintage with plenty of berry, and ripe fruit flavors. The tannins are yielding and wrapped around a core of fresh acidity. Excellent.
