Big and softly spicy on the nose with a hint of fennel and violets accenting the spicy red fruit and floral aromas. A little sweet on entry and through the mid-palate. This is classic Sta Rita Hills in the mouth, big and round yet not too weighty with fresh, ripe red raspberry and slightly purple grapy fruit. The acid is bright and the tannins supple making this easy to drink. It’s not very complex with some fading wood spice adding a little detail to the lovely cherry/strawberry seeds/blueberry fruit that fades on the refreshingly tart finish leaving the palate with some slightly astringent yet pleasant tannins. 90pts
