High acid, tart and snappy berry fruit from the excellent Stillwater Creek vineyard yields a clean, precise, varietally driven red wine with excellent color and extraction. The grip and structure are amazing; this would seem to have a long life ahead. It really cuts through and keeps on showing its strength, a rich vein of tart berry and cranberry fruit, pure and focused.
