The wine opens with floral, red fruit and earthy aromas, with a silky palate of classic red cherry. The long finish is perfumed with violets and cherry, and supported by fine tannins. It can be enjoyed now, and will gain complexity over the next five years.
Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians.
"Starts off with a burst of ripe cherry fruit which is the followed by red flowers and earth. Suave tannins and fresh acidity make for a magical pairing with braised short ribs with root vegetables." - Evan Saviolidis, EvanWineSavvy.com
"Subtle aromas of strawberry, cherry and subtle spice from the cork. Crafted by the talented Ann Sperling, with grapes sourced from the Laundry Vineyard, this organic red wine has medium+ intensity aromatics offering cherry, strawberry, raspberry, sweet herbs and a whiff of earthiness in the glass. Some dried floral aromas emerge with air. It's light-bodied but gains texture in the mouth. Smooth, refined tannins on the palate with earthy, red currant strawberry, cherry and mushroom flavours. Acids are fresh and balanced. Some milk chocolate notes on the long finish. Fairly complex overall and should evolve nicely over the next 3-4 years."
- Jason Solanki, VintageWinePicks.ca
Hand-harvested, naturally fermented with 40% whole clusters, this wine was aged for 9 months in French oak, with larger format and only 12% new wood for complexity without dominant oak flavours.
