Even in its youth, the nose already offers lovely aromas of cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and vanilla. Dried red fruit flavors come to life on the smooth palate, with harmonious fruit and barrel flavors. Still over a year from release, the wine is nice and bright, showing good acid, lively fruit flavors, and will be very good once it’s ready.

Rating: 93-96
