"Deep vivid red. Intense aromas of fresh raspberry, cherry and five-spice powder; a sexy floral nuance gains strength as the wine stretches out. Sweet and seamless on the palate, showing very good heft and focus to the sappy red berry, rose pastille and spicecake flavors. Shows impressive energy on the gently tannic finish, which hangs on with strong, fruit-driven persistence."

"A lovely and delicately complex wine, with expressive violet and raspberry aromas and harmoniously layered cherry, floral tea and stony mineral flavors that glide through a long finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,400 cases made."
