James Suckling Review
Quite complex yet contained aromas of cassis, mulberries, leaves and bracken here, leading to a palate that has a smooth, sleek and softly approachable feel. Fresh dark berries sit in gentle tannins. A blend of 88% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, 2% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc. Drink over the next six years.
Wine Enthusiast Review
Bright, compelling aromas of raspberry, red currant and spice lead to ripe red-fruit flavors that taper toward the finish. Plump, surprisingly tamed tannins provide support.
Wine Tasting Notes
Showing the warmth and generosity of the growing season, this wine offers effusive aromas of Bing cherry, ripe strawberry and plum. As it evolves, additional aromas of molasses and ginger reveal themselves, along with a savory whiff of sagebrush that echoes Red Mountain's desert environment. On the palate, the wine has notable presence and depth. The entry is creamy and fine-grained, and a voluminous mid-palate displays gorgeous flavors of black plum, marionberry and grenadine, with notes of nutmeg and hazelnut adding complexity to the juicy fruit.
