Loads of red currants, raspberries, citrus oil, and dusty lavender on the palate. Rhubarb, wet stone and red currant nose.. The acidity should help last over the next 3-4 years.

Gorgeous aromas! RED! Red currants, red cherries, red flowers all ripe or in full bloom. Two vintages running, this is spot on delicious. Super old Bechtold vines with producing serious juice.

Black and white pepper, red currant, raspberry, and wildflowers are in the nose and on the palate. Balanced and nimble, this is so good. I enjoyed it with and without a grilled pork tenderloin.

This is my awakening wine - it broke me out of the Cab / Shiraz funk I found myself in some time ago. Forever grateful to William Allen for producing this super elegant bottle of loveliness.

Typical of William's style: properly ripe, no obvious oak. Fruit & earth. 100% enjoyable

For me there is nothing better quite frankly. This is my awakening wine, I'm not shy about that.
