The palate is extremely fresh and vibrant, with Bing cherry and plump hibiscus flavors at the core, dazzled by white pepper and olive tapenade on the fringes.

It's another wine that shines for its silky texture yet packs ample mid-palate depth as well as building structure and tannin. It's going to evolve beautifully for 10-15 years.

A bit more pliant and generous than most wines from this site, the Anna's is wonderfully expressive. The 60% whole clusters are not especially evident. Time in barrel have softened some of the more masculine contours that were present in barrel.- AG

On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and savory with a dry, saline and definitely stem-influenced finish. I'd give this a year or two in bottle to round out.
