Deep fruit, dark cherry with mint, dark herb, green spice and tea notes. Has a little Burgundian funkiness going on with a nice note of peppercorns and grilled, rare beef. Very clean, precise with modest but lovely crisp tannins, solid acidity is refreshing, red cherry fruit is fresh and crisp with a touch of that green spice up front then tea and earth on the midpalate. Medium bodied but very fine and layered with an absolutely refreshing feel, lovely focus and a moderately long finish that ends with a flourish of fine spice tones. Elegant and complex. 91pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Critical Acclaim:Wine Enthusiast, April 2007 90 "Good winemaking is evident here. This is clean and fresh, with light, appealing flavors of berry, cola and chocolate-covered espresso bean. The wine has a smooth, silky texture, and feels substantial without being fat or hot. It is certainly ageworthy and it wouldn't surprise me if it lasted a decade or more. But tough to keep your hands off it right now." - P.G. Northwest Palate, March/April 2007 Two Clusters "Gentle yet persistent scents of graham-spiced red fruits are layered with rose and cola accents. Juicy on the tongue, with hearty cherry and berry flavors backed by mouthwatering acidity, this lively wine offers plenty of punch.." Hilton Head Food & Wine Festival, February 2007 Gold Medal
