Spicy, tangy and tart, this well-made wine is softly layered and complex—a moderate and balanced version of the variety that shows cranberry and red-cherry goodness dotted in cinnamon and black pepper. ~V.B.
The alluring, rich color implies intensity and concentration. Primary fruit aromas include ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark cherry, and plum. On the palate, a full range of fresh red and dark fruit, with just a small jammy concentration, fans out into a rich and round mouthfeel with balanced, refreshing acidity. Savory notes of graphite, chocolate and vanilla add layers of flavor to the fruit, finished by an accent of classic Dry Creek Valley baking spice. ~winery notes
