This lush offering opens with appealing aromas of rose petals and fresh strawberries, then glides into a smooth-as-silk midpalate. The berry/cherry fruit is nicely adorned with toasty barrel flavors, and it’s as satiny as new sheets. You’ll find it hard to keep from gulping this by the glassful. Editors' Choice." "Ripe and demonstrative when first poured, this second Oregon vintage from the La Crema team has an oak-driven top note that recedes with air, revealing an earthy, dark red cherry flavor and a pleasing concentration in the finish. Pour it with roast squab."
