“Packs a lot of layers into a tight frame, piling up tiers of raspberry, chocolate and cinnamon flavors on a remarkably transparent structure, with fine tannins underlining the very long, expressive finish. Best from 2014 through 2020.” –HS
“Light on its feet, sailing its pretty plum and currant flavors into a refined cloud of fragile tannins. The finish lingers evocatively. This feels elegant on the surface, but has a swagger underneath. Drink now through 2020.” – HS
“Soft and fragrant, this is remarkable for its silky texture and seamless structure. Pretty strawberry and currant fruit pulse gently at the core, shading toward white pepper as the open-textured finish lingers elegantly. Drink now through 2015.” – HS
“Supple, graceful and deliciously complex, offering dark plum, blackberry and black olive flavors on a plush texture. The flavors linger expressively against wisps of tannins. Drink now through 2015.” – HS
“Sleek and racy, with vibrant notes of black cherry, dark plum and earthy spice playing against fine tannins and lively acidity. Mineral and maple syrup aromatics add to the finish. Drink now through 2022. 324 cases made.” – HS
