Much richer and more energetic wine than the leaner 2011. Medium bright ruby in color. Ripe, deep berry and plum fruit with a lively Russian River cranberry component and a nicely controlled dose of spicy oak. Despite the 15.2% alcohol, all is in balance here and the wine comes across as quite elegant and food-worthy. Nicly made and easy going down. - HK 2014-11-13
