    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet with purple hints. A rather brooding nose of ripe raspberry countered with earth, toast and dark perfume... maybe deep red rose petals. The palate displays a plush, cushioned silkiness, with interplay of juicy, mouthwatering acid and ripe, rich raspberry and boysenberry fruit, offset with dusty bramble leaf. The finish is long and relatively complex for such a youthful wine, displaying minerals with dusty tannin and a kick of mocha.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light on its feet, this is harmonious and beautifully focused to show its bright açaí berry and blackberry flavors in a spotlight. The finish sails on, letting the fruit linger. Drink now through 2015. 2,841 cases made.

    Medium-deep ruby purple colour. A little mute, pure cherry fruit, raspberry, black pepper and a touch of cinnamon. Plate shows very good balance, medium to high acid, medium level of very silky tannins, medium to full body. Long finish.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright medium red. Sexy aromas of cherry, raspberry and spices lifted by a mineral nuance. Juicy, spicy and sharply delineated, with a light touch to its low-fat red berry and licorice flavors. Not a fleshy pinot but intense, focused and long.
