2007 Proprietary Blend ‐ Very bright, energetic red fruit, spiced plums and cherry pie, hint of whole wheat wafers. Full and lush.
Wine Advocate Retrospective Tasting:
Medium garnet with a hint of brick to the color, the wine is scented of warm plums and cassis with dried herbs and earthy notions. Medium to full bodied, the palate has a tart, chewy frame with plenty of juice, herb-laced fruit, finishing lively. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2023.
