The nose is fantastic, cherry, just-turned earth, sage, cardamom, and more with so much happening it’s possible to forget to drink. The same complexity shows the palate, with cherries, raspberries, rose petals, and spices, shifting from fruity to floral, with spice running throughout. Tannins are soft and slightly dusty. Mouth-feel is lush and the finish lingering. This is a great bottle of wine. Drink with lamb chops from a farm within 50 miles of your home. Highly Recommended. 94 points. DBH
