Waves of bright acidity push this sturdy schooner to a long, lingering finish.

Wine Enthusiast

Juicy and broad in pomegranate, blood orange and blackberry, this wine also offers tremendously appealing and complex seasonings of dried herb and black pepper. Balanced by underlying acidity, it shows the intensity and intellectual satisfaction of old vines.
