The wine has a vibrant and youthful ruby red color and has a very expressive nose of dark chocolate, black cherry and dark raspberry fruits, sweet violet flowers and a toasty oak driven vanilla spice. The wine is energetic with pure flavors of dark cherry and raspberry which echo on the richly textured palate and are framed in by pie spices, dried rose petal and earth flavors and nuances. The finish on this wine is long and promising with persistence and mouthwatering food-friendliness now but the structure to age and drink well for another 10+ years.
a very good wine amongst the Oregons. good balance very good nose.
