Brilliant red. Aromas of fresh red berries, vanilla and baking spices show very good clarity and lift. Silky, focused and energetic on the palate, offering sweet cherry and raspberry flavors that deepen slowly on the back half. Finishes juicy, precise and quite long, featuring a touch of smokiness and gentle tannins that sneak in late.

This supple red is balanced and expressive. Cherry, vanilla, orange peel and spice notes mingle over light tannins, supported by citrusy acidity. Not a big wine, but has focus and energy. Drink now through 2025. 2,500 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.
