"Light bright red. Intense, highly perfumed red fruit and floral pastille aromas show excellent clarity, and a zesty mineral overtone builds in the glass. Lithe and sharply focused on the palate, offering lively raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Juicy, pure and precise, finishing with very good focus and silky, even tannins that add gentle grip."
The bountiful 2014 harvest enabled us to produce more of this entry - level cuvee than ever before! With a very warm growing season and terrific fruit set, we were able to ripen a record crop on our Belle Pente estate vineyard, and achieved higher than normal yields in our Dundee Hills vineyards as well. The season is reflected in the concentration and density of this bottling, with reticent aromatics of ripe red and blue fruit, and a rich, full, deep palate. It is a brooding, compact young wine that gains interest with aeration and will be at it s best after a year or two in the cellar.
