    Winemaker's Notes:

    Black pepper, cloves, nutmeg, and anise open the bouquet, gradually giving way to raspberries, royal anne cherries, and orange zest. The palate opens with pure black cherries framed by bright, juicy acidity and fine grain tannins. The wines of 2009 are expressing their fruit early, but we believe this wine has the structure and acidity to age gracefully for 10-15 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light in texture and weight, but shows real presence with its strawberry and cherry fruit, with cinnamon and talcum overtones. Finishes with refinement and grace. Drink now through 2019. 3,200 cases made.

    Aromas of sour cherries, bergamot and plum give way to a clean, fresh burst of red cherry flavor. A dusting of talc-like mineral acidity keeps the wine bright and on point. Delicious as an aperitif, or with halibut.

    Dark red. Dark berries, sassafras and anise on the fragrant nose. Plush, expansive black raspberry and cherry flavors pick up spiciness with air and show very good energy. The sweet, penetrating finish clings with spicy intensity.

    3.5 stars. Was hoping for a little more earthiness, though not to imply that there wasn't any.
