This is nicely cloaked with charcoal and roasted apple wood, while the core of steeped fig, blackberry and black cherry paste notes sits in reserve. The well-defined finish is mostly grip for now, but should meld in the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2026. 1,750 cases made.

Ruby-red. Spicy, refined aromas of red cherry, raspberry and flowers. Bright, pure and focused, this medium-bodied wine exhibits pristine red cherry and red berry flavors lifted by minerals and flowers. The very long, smooth finish features lingering strawberry and white pepper nuances hinting at cabernet franc and polished tannins. I never would have guessed this was carrying 15% alcohol.
