This wine is both elegant and intense, offering layered aromas of red raspeberries, fresh Oregon strawberries, brown spice and cedar. Its aromas are reflected on a palate that speaks of purity and elegance, and is exceptionally balanced with silky tannins and a persistent finish. 92 Points Josh Raynolds "Vivid ruby-red. Sexy mineral- and spice-accented cherry and black raspberry scents show very good clarity and a suave floral nuance. Pliant red and dark berry flavors expand in the glass, picking up hints of cola, woodsmoke and vanilla bean. Closes with repeating spiciness, supple tannins and excellent clarity, leaving a juicy blackberry note behind."
