Wine Spectator ReviewAromatically complex, with enticing floral, perfumed fruit and spice, cedar and cigar box scents.

Winemaker's Notes:

Abundant rainfall in winter and spring provided favorable moisture to the vines. Reaching maturity at an ideal pace, the berries and crop size were smaller than average; a warm spell in September brought the grapes to an even maturity. The wines show complex aromatics and supple tannins.
