Wine EnthusiastWarm butter and light toasted oak scents meld with smoked lemon and walnut hints on the nose of this reserve bottling. The palate is soft and almost sweet upon entry, its cashew and roasted apple flavors buttressed by a grippy tannic texture.
Wine SpectatorMouthfilling flavors of ginger, gooseberry and white berry are focused and well-proportioned. Smoky hints show midpalate, followed by a suave finish loaded with delicate citrus, spice and dried herbal notes. Drink now through 2021. 1,727 cases made.
