14.2% alc., 30 cases, $49. Released August 2018. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Charming aromas of cherry, red berry, rose petal and dried herbs. Righteous fruit flavors of cherry and blueberry with hints of tutti-fruity, spice and cocoa. A classy wine with balanced tannins, juicy acidity and persistence on the finish. The lovely fruit floods the mouth with goodness without weight, picking up charm and intensity over time in the glass. Score: 93. Reviewed February 2, 2019
