Winemaker's Notes:

The Mark series is crafted solely from barrels dedicated to reserve rows within the vineyard. This is a full-bodied, aromatic wine with the ability to cellar. Named for our son Mark, the Roman numeral denotes this vintage’s place in the series.

Big and toasty on the nose with a charry, oak driven nose that highlights the earthy quality here and seems to be concealing a bright more floral aspect of the wine. On the palate this is really texturally complete with great balance to the integrated yet prominent acids and the sweetness from the oak. The mid-palate is packed with cherry fruit, and while the wine gets a bit big and boisterous on the backend and through the modest finish, it shows a lot of incipient complexity and fun fruit. 90pts

Very fruity on the nose with a rich floral tone and nice spiced accents. The aromatic here are more high-toned top notes than a rich core but still quite pretty. Rich and youthful on the palate with powerful, deep flavors in an intense, somewhat rich, yet sinewy package that highlights the astringent red fruits on the palate. This really develops really fine transparency with rich mineral accents on the mid-palate and mineral and spice tones on the elegant finish. 91pts

A touch woody on the nose with a smoldering grapevine note accentuating rather simple fruit. On the palate this is gentle with bright acids and an earthy, slightly herbal core to the flavors of red fruits on the palate. Good length but this remains a bit underwhelming. 87pts
