Asha is an ancient Persian Word describing one who has a clean conscience for good thoughts, words, and deeds with a pure demeanor and performance.
A bejeweled glassful of garnets, Asha snakes onto your palate with amarena cherries, clove and a tantalizing whisp of "¦ what is that? A distant campfire? Elegant and slippery tannins sway to a tune played upon vanilla violins.

wine enthusiast 92 pts"This is the current release as of early 2022. It's a tannic, robust wine just beginning to soften up after five years in bottle. Pie cherries, orange peel and wood smoke inform the aromas, continuing on into the palate. The flavors are supported with moderate acids and smooth tannins leaving a trail of milk chocolate. The overall balance and apparently slow-aging process suggest that this wine still has a long way to go. - Paul Gregutt"
