The 2016 Russian River Estate is a striking ruby/garnet color, with lifted aromas ofblackberry, blueberry, cranberry preserves and kirsch, with accompanying notes oftoasted pinenut, dried leaves and an exotic clove note. Luscious and fresh on the palatewith juicy berry and black fruit and firm but subtle tannin. Big yet still bright, the finishhas herbal notes joining the lingering dark fruit.
