This outstanding vineyard comes through again with a full, fleshy, almost beefy wine. Powerful red fruits are enhanced with subtle flavors of citrus, juniper, pine needle, dried herbs and mint. Elegant and complex, the fruit from these young vines shows power and grace. Most surprisingly, the finish actually gains strength as it lingers. The sweet black cherry flavor seems to last forever.
