Tough to beat for balance of elegance and rustic appeal...garnet with a touch of copper, smokey dusty cherries, rose petal, plum, spice cake. I like the Beaujolais comparison but this has a bit more power and body

Nose of red Forrest fruits, very lovely. Palate with a strong acid backbone and same red fruits dancing around it. Very long and subtle palate that ends with a long finish full of grace and fruits. Very burgundy like! Love it
