A bit sweet and simple on the nose with intense vanilla, jammy cherry and sandalwood aromas. This is round and smooth in the mouth, a bit on the low acid side and with only modest tannins making it “fruit forward” and there's plenty of fruit here, really quite raspberry-toned with notes of red cherry and blackberry thrown in for good measure. The finish is modest and clean with good freshness. Not complicated but easy to drink and well made. 85pts

Hints of stem, smoke, brown sugar and mint accent the cool rut that's topped with savory and slightly medicinal, chocolate notes on the nose. This is soft and transparent and noticeably tannic in the mouth, showing off good tension with a wide band of savory oak across the mid palate, and a dry tannic finish that is pretty long, if a touch flat, while showing off nice dry plum fruit. 87pts

Aromatic wine. Polished aromas of kirsch and currant. Sweet and ripe red berry. Delicate floral notes. Luscious on the palate with lots of red berry fruit. Smooth and refined in style. Flavors of currant, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry and cherry. Nicely balanced. Softer, feminine profile. Touch of black raspberry. Really nice cherry overtones. Driven by red flavors. Hints of herb. Pretty wine! 90 pts. 5/10/13
