Description

"...offers a classic, complex bouquet of red and black cherries, forest floor, spice, and dried flowers. This silky, elegant and lightly textured effort has sweet tannin and a graceful, balanced texture. Aged 17 months in 60% new French oak, it's one of the standouts in the lineup and will drink brilliantly for a decade." ~ Jeb Dunnuck 

"A vibrant style, featuring a spicy snap to the raspberry, cherry and red currant flavors. Minerally midpalate, with a long, rich finish that offers a suave texture. Drink now through 2022." ~ Wine Spectator

"...nicely lifted and energetic, with a good bit of brightness from the 33% whole clusters. Light on its feet, aromatic and highly nuanced, the 2016 is very pretty and expressive today. Silky tannins round out the polished, nuanced finish." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
