Stemmy and almost a bit minty on the nose with sage and balsam layered over vanilla framed raspberry fruit. Fres, precise and zesty on entry, this shows off super polished and supple tannins and sport plenty of well integrated acidity in a rather sleek and elegant package. The texture is just gorgeous, a hint of fleshiness, cherry and raspberry toned, wrapped around the taut, linear structure. Though the flavors are low key and restrained this does gain some nice soil tones on the back end that lead to a clean, refreshing that is brief if finish studded with fresh raspberry flavors. 86pts

The nose has aspberry, stawberry, and a light hint of wonderful stink. On the palate, this is bright and amazingly fruity, with very soft tannins and a great acidic bite on the back end.

Fresh and lively, reminiscent of Beaujolais for its overt fruitiness, nicely shaped and supple through the finish to feature the bright currant and berry flavors. Drink now.

The nose opens with bright aromas of cherry and raspberry backed by a hint of leather. Floral notes are complimented by tones of dried orange peel. The entry opens with rich flavors of brown sugar and sweet fruit cake with a touch of spice and clove. The medium bodied mouthfeel features chewy tannins and nicely balanced acidity, leading to elements of juicy red fruits on the finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

A jazzy red, displaying pretty cherry and raspberry fruit on a deftly balanced frame, lingering nicely. Drink now through 2014.

Medium cherry-red. Floral, candied aromas of raspberry, strawberry and banana, with a hint of bubblegum; Beaujolais-like. Juicy and spicy, with restrained sweetness and a repeating banana note. This reminded me of bug juice at summer camp. Nicely fresh, lean wine with a dry-edged, peppery finish.

Light and Beaujolais-like, with pretty blackberry fruit finishing with some exuberance. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

A beautiful wine that truly expresses the terroir of the red, volcanic earth where it was grown. Aromas of red fruits, violets, clove, and tea leaf. Flavors mirror aromas with juicy bing cherry, lavender, earth and mineral followed by an elegant finish that lingers with spicy cinnamon and clove notes. The mouthfeel is round and generous with a concentrated mid-palate and good acidity. Appealing now, but will further reward those who cellar this wine. Peak drinkability is between 2007-2011.
