Description

"A rugged and feral quality marks the nose of this excellent wine. Black raspberry and plum aromas are laid across savory beef fat, dried sage and scents of mint, pencil lead and Indian spice. The mouthfeel is soft and the palate is meaty, with baked plum, black cherry, black cardamom and raw beef flavors, lifted by a minty quality." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"From a site off Sweeney Canyon in the Sta. Rita Hills, the 2013 Parker West Vineyard (aged 18 months in 33% new French oak) offers gorgeous rose petal, spring flowers, raspberries and strawberry aromas and flavors. It's medium-bodied, fresh and lively, with nicely integrated acidity and great purity of fruit. Pretty, perfumed, floral and loaded with charm, drink it over the coming 5-6 years." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
