According to Wine Spectator - "Earthy, vegetal flavors predominate, backed by ripe cherry and plum fruit. The savory side wins in the end. Not for all tastes, but a distinctive and intense style. Best from 2016 through 2020."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "This estate-grown wine is overseen for Jackson Family Wines by Ken Wright. Showing some sharp, high-toned volatility in the nose, it opens into a smooth, spicy wine with pomegranate and black cherry fruit......"
Tasting Notes - "This gorgeous 2012 vintage made by Ken Wright exhibits all of the beautiful floral and spice elements we typically see on this site; rose petal, plum, hibiscus, root beer / cherry cola, mouth-filling juicy red raspberry and a seamless white pepper finish. The body and tannins have a medium-plus intensity exhibiting flavors of white pepper spice, plum skin, stewed cherries, cedar shavings, root beer candy, nutmeg, wet fresh mulch and dried rose hips. A divine wine and perfect generous vintage." 14% ABV.
