vinous logo"Inky ruby. Pungent red currant and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of licorice, rose and black pepper. Juicy and focused, offering energetic red fruit and floral pastille flavors that take a turn to darker cassis with air. A firm spine of acidity adds focus to the long, subtly sweet and youthfully tannic finish, which features a hint of licorice. - Josh Raynolds"

vinous logo 250"Vivid ruby. Spice-accented dark berry and licorice aromas are complemented by a subtle smoky quality. Round and fleshy on the palate, offering gently sweet blueberry and cherry flavors lifted by zesty acidity. Closes with good energy and focus and just a hint of dusty tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
