Displaying deep, dark garnet color and lovely aromas of marion berry, bramble, chocolate plum and all-spice; the palate is lush and concentrated with boysenberry, cassis, anise and semisweet chocolate. Rewarding now, this wine will continue to evolve and delight for 5-10 years.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - From both hillside sites and valley floor, this entry-level wine is impressively made and ready to be enjoyed. A mix of rose petals and raspberry preserves surround a good grip of tannin and savory tease of clove, before a lengthy finish adds to the experience. It’s made with 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.
Wine Spectator 88 points - Well done in an austere style, marked by dusty, cedary oak, dried berry, sage and underbrush notes, ending with a woody flavor and texture. Drink now through 2023. 30,386 cases made.
