"Sleek and focused, with fine tannins around a spicy core of red
berry, white pepper and violet flavors, gliding easily into a long and
expressive finish. Drink now through 2024. 143 cases made." 92 points. Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator, December 2016
“This flagship blend is sourced from
25-year-old vines. It’s sharply focused and bright, the strawberry and cherry flavors front and center. The flavors
have a hard candy quality, with pleasant hints of toast and caramel through the
close.” 90 Points. Paul Gregutt Wine Enthusiast, December 2016
"The wine was aged 16
months in oak barrels.
Light cherry red color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, cranberry, strawberry
and green herbs lead to a light to mid weight styled wine with flavors that echo the aromas. There
is more power than the color would suggest, and the polished texture makes for easy drinking.
Very forward, with deft oak management, and well-proportioned tannins. Quite typical of the
Dundee Hills in character."
