(2011 Vintage) Delivering great depth from a diverse set of top rated vineyards, this deep crimson wine displays sophisticated aromas of lavender, pencil shaving and black fruits. The dense, viscous palate fills the mouth with boysenberry, red currant, and cassis. The long polished finish is graced with subtle notes of cigar box and is fully rounded by the velvety tannins.
Not bad for a white. Purchased in a $20 wine pull raffle. Used in recipe and then drank the rest. Held up well in fridge. Screw top. Tasted good.
Smooth, fruit forward despite strong alcohol nose
