An elegant stylish version with mulled red cherry and red currant fruit hanging gracefully through the tea- sandalwood- and mineral-infused finish. Nice latent grip checks in at the very end. Drink now through 2019. 1965... An elegant stylish version with mulled red cherry and red currant fruit hanging gracefully through the tea- sandalwood- and mineral-infused finish.

Spicy mineral-driven aromas of red berries spicecake and lavender are alluringly pure and focused. A racy sweet midweight that offers juicy strawberry and raspberry flavors with silky tannins adding support. The floral quality echoes through the persistent spicy tannin-free finish. This is drinking well right now. 90 points

An exquisite pinot-like nose of expressive red fruits including bright red cherry red currant and raspberry with a touch of powdered chocolate vanilla and black pepper on the periphery. Medium-bodied with silky tannins that continue to build through the long finish. Drinking beautifully now but should continue to build more complexity over the next 5-10 years.
