(made from yields of under two tons per acre, according to Dehlinger): Vivid red. Heady, intensely perfumed scents of candied red and dark berries, Asian spices and potpourri, with a smoky accent building with air. Juicy, focused and alluringly sweet, offering intense black raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a silky texture. Shows an intriguing blend of richness and vivacity and finishes with excellent focus and length. This wine saw 40% new oak and it's working in great harmony with the fruit.
