A perennial knockout, this wine combines vineyard sites from its namesake Westside Road. Flavors of smoke, strawberry, forest floor and black tea accent a velvety, lush palate, ending with a fresh, savory edge.
Spice cherries, wild strawberries, and crushed violets, notes, as well as plenty of spice, all emerge...medium-bodied, has a wonderful sense of purity and ripe fruit, ultra-fine tannins, a weightless texture, and a great finish. This is incredibly classy and one of the more ethereal, elegant, and seamless wines...
... Medium in body yet also quite deep and resonant...succulent and inviting... Black cherry, plum, violet and cloves all add to the wine's dark-ish leaning flavor profile.
...very pretty violet, dried flowers and bitter citrus peel scents with blueberry, warm blackberries, nutmeg, dried black tea leaves and autumn leaves aromas. It's light to medium-bodied with a good core of fruit framed by soft, grainy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing spicy.
... Wild raspberries and red cherries on offer, as well as such attractively defined, spicy aromas. The palate has a smooth and fleshy feel with great depth and density and the fruit flesh is very supple. This sits up very fresh and juicy.
Concentrated dark cherry, plum and raspberry tart flavors are creamy and rich-tasting. Plush midpalate, with a lusciously spicy finish that is filled with cocoa powder and Asian spice notes.
...there is a whiff of tar character to the cool menthol, spice and essence of red pinot fruit-suffused nose. The succulent, delicious and rounded medium-bodied flavors possess reasonably good mid-palate density before concluding in a dusty, intense and ever-so-slightly drying finish...the complexity is impressive...
