Winemaker's Notes:

"This property must have had some hail damage, as the 2011 seems lighter than normal (and I tasted it on three separate occasions). The color is a healthy dense ruby/plum and there is an attractive, up-front bouquet, but the wine is medium-bodied, somewhat superficial, fresh and fruity. It is ideal for drinking in its first 7-8 years of life." --Robert Parker*Robert Parker rating: (85-87 pts.)**We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*
