WE 89 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Sharp cinnamon and squeezed pomegranate aromas mix with strawberry blossoms and dried cherries on the nose of this wine from the longtime regional producer. The palate is driven by chaparral aromas of wild sage, coyote brush and juniper, spicing up the red-fruit flavors.
Tasting Notes - "It is made to be bright and appealing upon release, with the fresh, cool - climate flavors for which the Monterey County AVA is known. It has a beautiful, deep ruby color with bright fruit aromas of cranberry, currant and plum, as well as hints of vanilla. The crisp red fruit flavors continue on the palate, where they are accentuated by soft, smooth tannins. The finish is long with lush fruit and hints of vanilla and French oak." 14.6% ABV.
