Review:
Light in the glass, this single-vineyard expression blasts off on its fabulous nose with snappy atoms of rose petal, hibiscus, red fruit, baked earth, wild thyme and dried tarragon. The palate is lively with cran-raspberry flavors as well as sagebrush and desert scrub, all clinging to a tightly woven frame.
