Light orange/rusty opaque core, changing ever so slightly to a lighter mahogany orange at the rim, on the nose smokehouse, dusty earth, cedar, and slightly sweet smelling red fruit. Â In the mouth its dry with medium intensity, acidity jumps up and is felt right away, the fruit is weak but present, dried cranberry, sour cherry and red currant accented by toasted bread with dried herbs and a hint of mushroom and forest moss. The tannin is quickly dissolving and gentle.

A treat to taste, and evolved significantly enough to really expose how well Barton wines stand the test of time. Still vibrant and kicking, expelling a dynamic m?lange of dried flowers, rose water, orange peel, cardamom, leather and touches of dried currant from the glass. While the palate was initially sharply citric, the brightness dimmed a bit in time as the wine put on a bit of weight, still flexing some grip in its tea-like tannins. Fascinating wine & still an enjoyable experience
