A robust wine. Present tannins and acidity but not overpowering. Red fruit with back end (spine?) of black fruit. 2021

Dried raspberry, carnation, rose petal, and ripest plum, with palm leaf and cocoanut nose. Cherry and raspberry conspire on the palate to reign in the fruitiness with tart expressions. Very low tannic profile outside the fruit, with a violet side shuffle and pleasant touch of blackberry.

Deep Ruby color with aromas of red fruits, cedar and baking spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and raspberry with toasty notes and cinnamon spice. Aged in French oak (about 50% new). Full-bodied, fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit toasty oak and an earthy character. Nice!

Took a long while to open up and show itself, and was not great right off. But couple hours of air and here we are! Ripe strawberry party on the front, but then prunes and dates on a long finish. (A little olive or briny undertone for me on this bottle. Don’t see others saying that) Big and lush and indulgent. #staycation

Always delivers. Big and bold flavors. Plums, strawberries and cranberries. Dense Russian River style.
