I guess Bottle Barn was cleaning out their inventory - I purchased this wine for basically 1/2 retail. Very Burgundian weight and feel to this wine, definitely cool-climate California style That's not unexpected since the vineyard is in Annapolis, only 3 miles from the coast in far northern Sonoma County. Tautly structured, but displaying an attractive mix of flavors and aromas - strawberry, red raspberry, rhubarb, red roses, earthy/leafy notes. Light on its feet, but with a real sense of grip in the mouth and finish. - HK 2020-01-13
