89A recent line of wines from Canyon Wind focused on Bordeaux-style blends, Anemoi Boreas shows what Colorado is capable of when it comes to red wines in favorable vintages. Gritty and full of dark berry fruits and blackcurrant, this is a serious wine what is just starting to integrate its oak and nutmeg-like spices. Chocolate, liqueur and savory balsamic notes add to the complexity. Recommended. 89.
