Clear, bright red. Brooding aromas of medicinal dark cherry and earth, with lively red fruits emerging with aeration. Big, broad and velvety; richer and fuller in the mouth than the Eaton Family Vineyard bottling but without quite the clarity or perfume of that wine. This began with black cherry fruit but showed ripe strawberry as it opened in the glass. Finishes with bigger but thoroughly ripe tannins and excellent lift and verve. Interestingly, with air this showed a fresher fruit character, while the Eaton Family Vineyard took on more complex sassafras and earth nuances.

The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
