Medium-to-high aromas featuring cherry, exotic spice, earthy undertones and subtle oak aromas. Medium-bodied on the palate with surprisingly chalky tannins. Has bright acids and pleasing aroma replays that continue on to the long finish that is earthy with subtle spice notes. Tasted June/2015. Score: 90+ pts

This vintage suffers from high acids resulting in sour fruit. Very light firm tannins. Subtle cherry oak notes. Simple.
