A wine that seems to walk a line between earthy savor and fruit, between tension and ripeness, this reaches a comfortable middle ground of understated elegance. With its dark cherry aromas influenced by stem inclusion, it feels opulent, only to get reined in by a savory contour. The texture feels at once sensuous and integrated, velvety fruit tannins holding the lush fruit in check, with a wisp of Eola–Amity Hills minerality adding some delicate detail to the structure. Cellar this to watch it evolve. (450 cases) Wine & Spirits Magazine
Medium body; strawberry rhubarb and hint of smokiness. Much better the next day.
