...aromas of pure red fruit and earth recall a wild strawberry plucked from a field of minty sagebrush. Rounded red-currant, pine-needle and redwood-frond flavors power the fresh palate, which is delightful and delicious.
...deep, powerful wine endowed with tremendous intensity... White pepper, crushed rocks, savory herbs and chalk give the 3D a beguiling upper register to play off its dense fruit and imposing structure. Veins of salinity give energy and brightness.
...plenty of riper black cherry, earth, spice, and meaty notes as well as a layered, medium to full-bodied, textured style on the palate. It has good acidity, plenty of classic savory, spicy Sta. Rita hills style, and a great finish.
Fine-edged, providing an elegant mix of dried cherry, red currant and wild plum flavors that are supported by fresh acidity. Hints of white pepper show on the minerally and well-spiced finish.
