Oh man. 2014 slightly softening. Tannins are velvety but present, with sites red fruit, tobacco, pencil lead, dried herbs. Showing some slight age. Fruit up front and a touch of new American oak in the finish. A cool vintage with a short life, showing quite well.

Deep ruby with purple highlights. Red and black cherry. Ripe fruit. Baking spice. Plum. M+ acid, body and tannin. Balanced with a long finish. Bright on the palate. This is the perfect pizza wine.

Best geyserville in years. Bramble berries perfume and anise. Great acidity and verve.
