Just starting to taste the 13's, so I don't have a really good grip on the vintage yet. But it does appear that some wineries were challenged. This wine has light cherry on the nose and palate and is lighter in style this year with moderately high acid. It seems appropriate for the vintage and I prefer this style. In a perfect world, I would like more secondary nuances.

Always solid, always dependable, rarely exceptional, but when you're looking for solid, look here.

Nice, elegant aromas of baking spices, sweet, fresh red fruits and mint. Medium-bodied. Great to sip on its own or pair with food.

Tasty, drinkable especially one hour after opening. Light body, little astringency, ripe black fruit, hint of apple.
