    Winemaker's Notes:

    As refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine opens with explosive aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, black cherry, and a hint of smoke and anise. Flavors mirror the aromas and are complemented by balanced, soft tannins and ripe acidity. Juicy flavors lead to a juicy pomegranite finish. This wine holds an elegant, refined weight on the palate throughout, inviting another sip. Meant to drink young. Enjoy this wine now through 2012.

    Perfect with bold cheeses, thai food and pizza. If lightly chilled, the perfect pairing for a summer picnic. Also an excellent match for grilled fish or chicken - a good choice for a summer BBQ.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is quite similar to the ’09 version except that here the fruit is slightly riper and the floral influence is stronger. There is good richness to the solidly voluminous and wellconcentrated flavors that are shaped by buried tannins on the dusty and moderately austere finish. I very much like the depth and overall sense of balance though note that this will need time to blossom.

    Had this wine at a wine bar at the recommendation of the bartender. Loved it. Very smooth wine.

    Light density raspberry red. Fruity aroma of raspberry - not strong but persistant. Sweet, smooth, soft tannins. Raspberry taste from start to finish. Full flavor but not heavy. Hint of pomagranite on finish.

    Was expecting to love this wine, but was disappointed. Tasted more like a old-world burgundy. Did not have light, fruit forward characters of berries as expected.

    Perhaps ths single worst wine I have ever tasted. Medicinal mineraly taste. Not sure whether this bottle was particulary bad.

    Didn't like this at all. Very light compared to some of WVV other wines. Couldn't taste any fruit.
