Friday, March 15, 2013 - Dinner at our house with Beth and Dave first bottle opened from this purchase. Served with salad and first course.
Medium garnet color, nose has dark fruits, earth, barnyard. Medium body wine, restrained and elegant. Black cherry flavors, tart raspberry. Savory herbs and a hint of lavender on the finish.
This is a really nice wine, a surprise to the upside, everyone loved it. AR making terrific and diverse set of wines at reasonable prices. My guess is it will drink at this level for the next 2-4 years. Not sure it has big upside with aging.
