Red wines showing lighter color intensities, almost tawny, that doesn’t mean the fruit, balance, and structure are anything short of ideal. Asian spice and fruit is ample, as well as cola, fresh raspberry, dusty black cherry, plum pie, cedar, morels, hints of earth, and a balanced barrel component. We think this wine is a classic example of elegance, showing finesse and texture over size, with velour-like tannins, a supple silky finish, and impeccable balance.
