Description

"Cherry-rhubarb juice, shiitake mushrooms, sagebrush and iron make for a lush and layered nose on this appellation-blend wine that is widely available. The palate begins with plush red cherry then dives into oregano, sage and mace spice. It's expertly complex for a reasonably priced wine." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"...Crushed flowers, tea leaves, smoke, tobacco and dried cherries are some of the signatures. The 2013 offers lovely inner sweetness and perfume, with a flavor profile that leans towards the more floral/savory side of things. The 2013 is a blend of several sites, the most important being Rio Vista, and was done with 10-15% whole clusters." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...Aged 12 month in one-third new French oak, it shows lots of Pinot character in its ripe strawberry, cherry and spice aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, charming and supple, with plenty of fruit, drink this charmer over the coming 2-3 years." ~ Wine Advocate
