Very transparent in the glass, ruby hued. Brambly red fruit on the nose. Dark and plush on the palate, with predominant purple and black berry flavors. Clear new oak influence, with pronounced tannins. Potentially some RS. Medium-high acidity. Extracted, "international" style. Good age to enjoy. Very drinkable with or without food. Quality.
Pronounced (Ah-LYAH-NEE-KO). Nose was immediate of cranberry and vanilla as I popped the cork and poured into the decanter. 3 hours later got a mix between cherry/cranberry. Palate is medium to full bodied with a initial tartness. The acidity is integrated nicely in the mid-palate that leads nicely into a smooth lingering gentle spice finish. I love Kenneth Volk wines because they produce different obscure varietal wines that you do not get to enjoy everyday. 5,13,15,6=89
Bouquet: Breads, macro sugars, heavy wild strawberry, mild tannins. Palate: Sweet, expressive front, basic mid with a hint of orange duck or kalua pig, a wet and medium bodied finish with plenty of red fruits.
