Description

"...this bottling allows its elegant fruit to shine, showing concentrated black cherry, cola, rose petal and ginger aromas. A tight boysenberry note emerges on the palate, dusted with clove and lavender and cut by lively acidity. A thorough and complete wine." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"Medium ruby-purple colored...has fragrant roses and violets notes over black cherries, mulberries and red plums, plus wafts of dried leaves and pepper. Medium-bodied with a solid backbone of firm, chewy tannins and lively acid, it has plenty of earthy layers and a black pepper note on the finish." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"...a barrel selection from Ashley's aged in all neutral oak. Deep, pliant and bold, the 2015 offers good intensity and textural richness in its dark cherry and plum flavors."  ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
