Description

"Elegant aromas of cassis, lavender and violet are offset by earthy potting soil scents on the nose of this bottling. Lovely layers of flower, fruit and spice erupt on the palate, which is wrapped in delicate but persistent tannins." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"...sensual, wild and exotic, with crazy aromatics and beguiling complexity that will charm readers for many years to come. Complex and multidimensional, the 2019 is dazzling from the very first taste. It's one of the most complex and weightless wines in this lineup." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...a darker, more earthy effort that still brings plenty of freshness in its bright cherry, candied strawberry, and sappy flower-like aromas and flavors. As with many of the 2019s from Fess Parker, it has a focused, firmer style on the palate that’s going to benefit from a year or two in the cellar." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
