In this cool climate vintage, the Ponzo comes across as relatively lean and underendowed. Bright berry nose with touches of dark cherry, vanilla, and toasty oak. Berry flavors continue in the mouth, but the wine seems constricted in the mid-palate and finish, which is assertively tart. Not my favorite year for Ponzo. - HK 2014-10-09
