|Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Quintessential California. Rich ruby, medium+ aromas. Dark cherry, raspberry, strawberry, cedar, forest floor, vanilla, pepper. Velvet tannins. Aromas are duplicated on the palate with the addition of smoke and warm spices. Finish is long and spicy warm. Medium alcohol.
This is a beautiful wine. Drinking nicely now with ageing potential.
Food friendly. Turkey with cranberry, planked salmon, or pleasant on it's own.
