95 Points – Antonio Galloni’s Vinous
Deep garnet color. Heady aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, incense and
potpourri, with an exotic spice nuance gaining power with aeration. Silky,
penetrating and appealingly sweet, with lively acidity providing energetic lift to
concentrated red/blue fruit, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors. Finishes
impressively long and smooth, with bright minerality and just a hint of finegrained tannins. This wine is made of 56.25% Gary’s Vineyard fruit and the
other 43.75% comes from Rosella’s Vineyard. 69.2% whole clusters and 37.5%
new French oak.
