Translucent ruby-red. Powerful red fruit liqueur, potpourri, incense and smoky mineral scents, along with hints of cola and exotic spices. Alluring sweet and animated on the palate, offering densely packed raspberry, boysenberry, spicecake, floral pastille flavors and a strong undercurrent of zesty minerality. Fine-grained tannins frame and shape a powerful, mineral-driven finish that lingers with superb persistence and mounting sweetness. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019)

Earth, barnyard, crunchy berries, depth and breadth envelops the palate. Layers upon layers. Plenty left to give. Fantastic offering from the Etzel’s.

Wet earthy nose. Full body, dry, smooth. Cherry cola, vanilla up front, strawberries on the back. Outstanding! Great wine from a great winery...as good as Oregon Pinot Noir gets IMO.

Pinotman buy this wine! This wine is fantastic and young. Started with sweet tart candy taste ( flaw to me) within an hour you get sweet dark fruit , spice an incredible long dark fruit taste and forest floor. Amazing wine . I got 6 pack and 3 liter bottle. Visit Boise and I’ll share!
