The 2014 Pondview Lot 74 Harmony Red, made of 50/50 Cabernet Franc and Merlot, has upon opening notes of plums, toast, cherry and rosehip on the nose that evolve into a bouquet of forest floor, strawberry and raspberry after 2 hours of decanting. It is a medium bodied, dry, fruity wine; with refined, slightly dusty tannins (decant for 2+ hours), checked acidity and a medium and smooth finish. Drink this wine with food; it will be ready to drink in couple of years, drink 2017-2020 (screw cap enclosure). Rated 86 pts. Tasted in Oct/15.

Opens with a nice mix of ripe red and black berry fruits, vanilla, bell pepper, anise, smoke, and even some faint violet. Some black cherry, leather, and pencil shavings emerge with these on the medium-bodied palate. Medium tannins and medium high acidity make this wine pleasant, drinkable, and versatile with food. Decent finish with red and black fruit and a touch of smoke. Good value.
