Aged 20 months in 500L French oak puncheons, 15% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Very shy but pleasant aromas of cherry and blueberry with a savory herb, green garden and nutty compliment. Black cherry, blueberry and spice flavors delight in the mouth. Firm but not imposing tannins provide structure and the wine finishes with length and generous black cherry and blueberry aromatic goodness. Score: 90. Reviewed May 7, 2017
