This new brand turns to this increasingly respected vineyard, which is located in a tenderloin of great properties in the southern part of the appellation. Even nearing the age of three years, it’s fresh, young and pure, with brisk flavors of raspberries and cherries. Could show greater depth and complexity, though, especially at this price.
This has lovely aromas of black pepper and blackberry, but in the mouth, it turns a bit soft and sweet, with melted chocolate and blueberry jam flavors. It’s ripe and tasty, but could use greater structure.
