Cherry cough drops in a pleasant way on the nose, and then a medium-berry mouth, spice, light cedar and raspberries—there’s a whole lot going on here. Not heavy on the complexity; rather it delivers clean fruit and simple spice.
Richly textured with plump, ripe, silky tannins. The wine kicks off with a burst of chocolate, then settles down to reveal black cherry, cassis, backberry and spice flavors. Long and lush to the end.
A lighter, more accessible style. Has that Dry Creek wild-berry and spicy fruit, and soft, friendly tannins. Rich, spicy and balanced. Not a blockbuster, it just offers lots of pleasure.
A nice, juicy red wine with some well-ripened cherry, coffee, cocoa and herb flavors and firm, rich tannins. Dry, and finishes with a mixture of astringency and sweetness. Be careful to decant this wine for several hours.
