2016 Clay Court
This wine opens with aromas of pie cherry, pinesap and wet bark. Red fruited with a clay minerality, the purity of fruit on the palate evokes ripe red strawberry and raspberry tea with a backbone of smooth tannins and a graceful, flinty char.
“Shows structure and finesse, with elegant cherry and tart blueberry flavors accented by dark tea and savory spice notes that build richness toward refined tannins.”
– Wine Spectator (October 15, 2018)
“…a nose of red and black cherry preserves with touches of spice, dried leaves and red licorice.Light to medium-bodied and silky textured, it fills the mouth with ripe black and red fruit preserves with lovely accents of potpourri and earth plus soft,fine-grained tannins and great juicy acidity, finishing long.”
