Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Bright violet color. High-pitched aromas of dark berries, minerals and fresh flowers, with a spicy overtone. Juicy cherry and cassis flavors show good poise and clarity, with juicy acidity adding lift. The brisk, clean, persistent finish repeats the spicy note.

    Bright red. Cherry, blackberry and licorice scents are deepened by bitter chocolate and espresso. Fresh and peppery, with vibrant red and dark berry flavors, zesty acid lift and a clean, brisk finish. With air, this took a turn toward sweet raspberry and strawberry. This is awfully easy to drink.
