Villa Creek High Road 2014
Wine AdvocateComing from James Berry Vineyard, the 2014 High Road James Berry Vineyard is an even split of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre that was fermented with 80% whole clusters and aged in a combination of new and neutral oak. Blackberries, pepper, licorice and spring flower nuances all flow from this medium to full-bodied, elegant, grippy and energetic red. While it's not a heavy weight, it shines for its purity and elegance.
