Another nicely spicy wine but one in which there are layers of nutty oak and lightly smoky red fruit between the spicy floral notes that recall hibiscus. Soft yet rich on entry, this offers up an attractive blend of power and clarity with flavors that bring together notes of wild strawberry, blueberry, herbs and earth. I really like this style of balance and good depth of flavor without a lot of weight on the tongue. The finish shows some brisk tannins and echos of blueberry fruit with a hint of creamy strawberry, as well. This has a touch of a sticky feel on the finish, though the tannins manage to balance that out nicely, creating good tension. 88pts
