Tasting Notes

A ruby-red color advancing to garnet. Bursting with aromas of strawberry, red berries and notes of sage, spice cake and subtle earth. The palate is vibrant and medium bodied, revealing lively cherry and exotic spice leading to polished tannins and a delicate finish.

Serving Suggestion

Most types of grilled, barbecued, marinated, roasted, or stuffed meats and fish.

Wine Spectator

88 points - Wine Spectator // The cherry, strawberry, tobacco and almond flavors are allied to moderate tannins and lively acidity, rendering this red balanced and approachable. Drink now through 2020. 45,000 cases made. –BS (December, 2017)

Wine Enthusiast

87 points - Wine Enthusiast // Delicate scents suggesting dark berry, moist soil and a whiff ground clove waft out of the glass. The fresh, light-bodied palate offers sour cherry and star anise alongside bright acidity and rather loose knit tannins. Drink through 2019. -Kerin O'Keefe (March, 2018)

James Suckling

90 points - James Suckling // A fresh and clean red with blueberry, blackberry and hints of stone. Full body, firm and silky. Very balanced for the vintage. Drink now. (October, 2017)
