Vinous 91 points - Bright ruby-red. Sexy, smoke-tinged aromas of dark berries, cherry-cola and peppery spices. Smooth and open-knit, offering gently sweet black raspberry and floral pastille flavors, along with a hint of vanilla. Smooth and gently tannic on the finish, which lingers with excellent tenacity and repeating smokiness. This fruit was grown in the winery’s estate vineyard in Monroe, which is in the southernmost sector of the Willamette Valley.
