2018 Chiles Valley

$60

Dusty sage and misty forest aromas lead to deep, layered and focused flavors of plum, dark fig and dark chocolate. The palate delivers freshness, combining mixed black and red berries with a hint of baking spices. Its exploding ripe fruit flavors are balanced by a backbone of bright acidity.

"It comes bounding out of the glass with notes of plum preserves, blueberry compote, chocolate-covered cherries and raisin cake plus suggestions of Indian spices and dried roses. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with black and blue fruit preserves, supported by soft tannins and a lively line, finishing long and spicy."
