Deep ruby. Intense, spice-tinged cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by notes of mocha, anise, underbrush and potpourri. Offers palate-staining red and dark berry flavors and suggestions of candied rose and spicecake, with a hint of vanilla bean adding sweetness. Seamless in texture and quite lively for its power, finishing with superb clarity and length and supple tannins that add shape to the wine's energetic berry fruit and floral qualities.

Extremely herbal #wine, powerfully dark red fruit with grippy tannins. Will age, I'd start looking at these in 17.

Richest of the 2012's I've tasted. Lots of potential. Fresh cherries, mineral, rich texture, and dried flowers

Soft, fresh and bright. Cinnamon and spiced capture the nose-leading to a youthful and mineral mouthfeel. Slight oak and racy tannins make for a good finish. Could use some bottle age.

Sipping Fine Wine

Shea Vineyard (44%), Fennwood Vineyard (33%), Estate Vineyard (15%) and Wapato Ridge Vineyard (8%), I saw a vivid ruby red color and fresh fruit aromas of red berries and spices. The palate yields sweet cherry and raspberry fruit with a hint of smoky espresso tang. The wine is well balanced and finishes long with smooth tannins and residual fruit. The wine was aged for 10 months in new French oak (26%), one-year old French oak (41%), two-year old French oak (24%), and neutral French oak (9%).
