Pale pink with a copper hue, this wine has a classic “eye of the partridge” color. Citrus-driven aromas carry through to the palate. On entry, bright acidity and flavors of pink grapefruit and lemon zest enliven the orange creamsicle notes, while hints of dried apricot and sweet spice add complexity. The brightness verges on minerality, but there is so much weight that the richness balances out the firm acidity and carries the flavors of dried fruit through the long-lasting finish.
deep garnet; luxurious and dynamic aromas of ripe strawberry, bright cherry, and faint spicy oak and vanilla; complex palate with smooth layers of rich red currants and baking spice flavors with light smoke, earth, and leather; balanced, velvety texture and supple tannins carry the through to a lingering succulent finish
moderate cherry and soft fruit on the nose and mild fruit fwd in the mouth with a balanced tanin characteristic
A medium body with a taste of blackberries and cherries at the front. Finishes clean and very smooth.
