Review:
Vivid ruby-red. Fresh red fruit and floral scents are accompanied by subtle herb and spice flourishes. Seamless and energetic on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that take a sweeter turn on the back half. Shows very good focus and tangy cut on the subtly tannic finish, which hangs on with strong, spicy persistence. There's something almost Pinot-like going on here.
