Product DescriptionWine Advocate Review
The 2013 Animo, which is 81.6% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, is even better. This wine shows a more opaque purple color, a sweet nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with licorice, lead pencil shavings and some subtle new oak in the background. It is full-bodied, pure, rich and impressive. A powerful wine, it will be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 15+ years. Drink 2018-2033.
James Suckling Review
The brightness and definition to this wine is impressive. Full body, blueberry, blackberry and floral character. Ultra-fine tannins. Drink now.
Wine Tasting Notes
Black fruits of loganberry, boysenberry and plum mingle with salted heirloom olives, cigar box and fresh herbs create an exciting aromatic profile. Fine grain tannins present themselves throughout the front, middle and finish of this wine demonstrating the intrinsic mountain fruit harvested at optimal ripeness. While the aromatics suggest a fruitful mouth, the rocky soils provide a surprising counterpoint of silky minerality and flavors of fresh plums, firm blackberries and a classic semblance of cassis, suede and sandalwood.
