Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County
Rated 90 points by Stephen Tanzer`s International Wine Cellar: Medium red. Fresh raspberry and candied cherry aromas are complicated by tobacco and Asian spices. Juicy red and dark berry flavors shows a liqueur-like concentration but are also impressively energetic and pure. Becomes chewier and riper on the finish, which leaves a strong note of bitter cherry behind.
