13.9% alc., 300 cases, $48. Release August 1, 2016. 50% Dijon 777 and 50% Dijon 115. 100% de-stemmed, 80-day cold soak, native inoculum, aged 11 months in French oak barrels, 33% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is highly inviting, with soaring aromas of cherry, rose petal and spice. Lighter in style and elegant, but plenty of weighty red cherry and red raspberry flavors framed by juicy acidity and silky tannins. The wine is seamless, with an engaging mouthfeel and an intriguing bit of iron minerality. Score: 92. Reviewed July 9, 2016 ARTICLE »
