Awarded 92 points from Wine Spectator.
Berry aromas with subtle spice and well-integrated oak. Palate is fruit-driven with bright red berry flavors. Smooth, fine-grain tannins and excellent structure and balance.
The wine was aged in a combination of tank and oak barrels for 9 months prior to bottling. The oak was selected to add a mix of spicy characters (cinnamon, pepper, and more) to the aroma and complexity and weight to the palate without being dominant. The wine is made in a food-friendly Old World–style.
Excellent on its own or with steak, lamb, salmon, and many other dishes
