($43) Bright red. Sexy, fragrant scents of red berries, spices and herbs, along with a hint of blood orange. Spicy, focused and refreshingly brisk on entry, gaining flesh and sweetness in the middle palate and offering juicy redcurrant and raspberry flavors. Tangy minerality adds cut to the persistent, spicy finish. I like this wine's precision and light touch.

Complex, with spicy red and black cherry, plum and spice flavors. Full-bodied, focused, elegant and balanced, ending with a long, delicate finish that echoes the dark berry themes. Drink now through 2018. 351 cases made.
