WINE SPECTATOR
A lush, captivating, velvety style, with gorgeous mouthfeel to the layers of fig sauce, warm linzer torte and cassis. Hints of pastis, sweet toasty spice and licorice snap chime in the background for now, with a long finish. Should be a winner after cellaring brings this together. Best from 2014 through 2028. 535 cases made

VINOUS
Vivid ruby. Compelling aromas of raspberry preserves, potpourri and blood orange, with a spicy overtone. Juicy and precise, offering palate-staining, deeply concentrated red fruit flavors that expand and gain spiciness with air. Finishes seamless and sweet, with intense lingering florality. Offers an impressive combination of depth and vivacity.
