A fresh elegant and complex nose blends both upper and lower register fruit aromas in particular red currant and plum along with subtle soil undertones that lead to delicious detailed and equally complex medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent focus balance and persistence on the beautifully long finish that displays an attractive touch of austerity. If you wanted to pick nits you could say that this is not as dense as some prior vintages but I would counter with how lovely this wine is to simply drink which is what really counts. Well worth your interest.

Medium ruby-colored it displays a superb bouquet of smoke earth notes cinnamon allspice wild cherry and raspberry. Smooth textured and graceful on the palate this medium-bodied wine has layers of succulent fruit lively acidity plenty of earthy spice notes moderate tannin and a lengthy fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for another 2-3 years and drink well through 2022. -Jay Miller

Firm in texture displaying fine tannins around pretty rose petal-accented guava and rhubarb fruit hinting at cinnamon as the finish extends. Drink now through 2015. 2450 cases made. -HS
