This intersection of various vineyards spanning the appellation creates a pyramid of perfection and beauty...fruit weight is balanced against the vivid cherry, spice, aniseed and campfire ash that gently lift from the bouquet.
...brilliant and explosive in the glass, with tons of brightness, energy and tension...mix of freshly cut and dried flowers, mint and pine add an intriguing upper register...finely chiseled and sculpted from start to finish. Bright saline notes add a closing kick of freshness.
Fragrant, full bodied and boasting great finesse...opens with enticing aromas of woodland berry, rose, camphor, botanical herb and exotic spice while the elegantly structured palate doles out juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and cinnamon. Firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity keep it impeccably balanced.
...nose is overflowing with fruit, with everything from strawberry compote to raspberry tea to chutney and boysenberry spread...marvelous intensity and concentration to the palate, which is full-bodied and very long...tannins have a grainy, grippy feel and the rose-petal undertones sing out on the finish...
Pretty cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors are shaded by underbrush, iron and tobacco notes in this chewy red...wall of tannins puts a strong grip on the finish...
...notes of iron and beautiful depth of fruit and super-elegant oak. Lots of finesse. Serious, beautifully grafted, long tannins that never dominate the juicy fruit. Nervy acidity and plenty of fresh fruit on the finish.
