I really loved the 2011 vintage of this. The 2012 just isn't doing it for me. Closed on the nose, darker fruit, not as bright. Still nice but it doesn't quite have the magic of the 2011.

Robust wine. Has some well defined tannins and a very Christmas spice character. Dark fruits linger around the mid palate but overall a pleasant herbaceous offering.

A young beauty - bright, luscious black raspberry and Darjeeling tea and (I think) some stem inclusion that's giving great texture and earthiness through the mid palate. Bright finish. Yum.
