Fruit and spice on the nose. Very approachable on opening and remained consistently good two days later. Raspberries spice (cinnamon) and slight plum on the palate. Medium density. Moderate length finish.

Consistency is good - see my notes from earlier vintage. Approachable on opening. Floral on the nose. Dense spicy raspberry and a touch of leather on the palate. Starting to show some mineral on a moderate long finish. Tannins show at the finish. Perhaps the vines are getting more mature as it seems as if the profile is moving towards an old world style that may need cellaring in future vintages.

Vault Brewing following a 15 mile bike ride on the New Hope Canal Path. This wine went well with Pork Belly Fries & Buffalo Cauliflower 😋

Floral nose - Spicy balanced palate with thick raspberry, nutmeg, and a touch of chocolate. Moderate finish. Very solid and well balanced.

Smooth and just the right amount of fruity taste. Loved it and want more.
