This vintage shows a real coming of age for this varietal at Vineland Estates. No longer is it “showing perhaps too much youthful midriff” in its dress but is now donning the maturity and elegance of a bespoke suit. The delicious, concentrated notes of Bing cherry, warm summer raspberry and cassis that used to be a little too “out there” and fractured in their presentation are now aligned and gracefully inte- grated. The smooth lines of this wine are mesmerizing as it dances towards you with seamless movements. Each expert turn can be studied and admired on its own but it is the whole that just blows you away.
