Reviews & Awards:
90 Points. "From the Rylstone district; matured for 16 months in new and used French and American oak. The hue is bright, although relatively light; the light to medium-bodied palate has notes of fresh cassis, and has not been forced by harsh extraction to exhibit more than it has. Drink soonish."
