The winery writes "This vintage is ruby red and garnet color. The nose is bright with pure hints of cherry blossom, fine grain cedar, and at this early stage, primary red fruit notes. The front palate shows sweet and elegant fruit upfront with lush mocha and darker fruit in the mid-palate. The wine drives a soft, delicate acidity, and refined with hints of perky, chalky tannins. The finish is fleshy with a juicy acidity that carries it through a balance of elegance and rising power."
