"Sleekly structured and savory, with expressive raspberry, violet and smoky tea accents that pick up speed toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2028. 4,497 cases made. -TF" (WS)

"Light ruby-red. Cherry, blackberry and a hint of smokiness on the nose and in the mouth. Focused and chewy in texture, showing solid grip on the finish, which is shaped by dusty, gently gripping tannins." (VM)

"Spicy oak is cast across ripe red berries and cherries and delivers a modern impression. There’s a fresh-earth edge here, too, with attractive, spicy notes and a very vibrant feel to the tannins, which carry a grainy cut that holds freshness into the finish. Drink or hold." (JS)

"Quite young and showing clean primary fruit flavors of tart red berries, this is backed with ample acidity, lending a pleasing citrusy snap to the mouthfeel. It finishes with a wash of minerality. Good now, but another year in the bottle wouldn't hurt a bit. Paul Gregutt" (WE)

Winery Notes:
A bright ruby color fills the glass. On the nose the Grand Cuvée displays youthful exuberance with lively aromas of tart cherries, strawberries and cranberries. While flavors of licorice, cola and baking spices balance perfectly on the pallete. A delightful lightness allows this wine to be the perfect accompaniment to any evening or celebration. Enjoy now through 2026.
