(aged for 14 months in French oak, 26 percent of it new): Brilliant ruby-red. Highly fragrant, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves and floral pastilles; a hint of vanilla emerges with air. Expansive raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are energized and lifted by juicy acidity and a late jolt of white pepper. Packs a solid punch but comes off lithe, finishing with excellent focus, well-knit tannins and strong persistence. (JR)
*One Star* Mildly suggestive of vanilla and candied red fruit on the nose and fundamentally following suit once in the mouth, this soft-leaning middleweight shies away from pushy ripeness and high extract and it settles instead on a pleasant mix of strawberries, cherries and plums as its straightforward message. It is far from complex, yet it is very easy to like, and it is one to tag for drinking in the near term while waiting for its maker's top single-site efforts to age into their best.
Displays a dusty, earthy, savory edge that tilts toward the dry and dusty side at the expense of a more forward fruit purity. An attractive and easy-to-enjoy wine. Drink now. (JL, Web-2017)
