92 points Wine Spectator: "Harmonious and gracefully complex, with expressive notes of violet, raspberry and cherry that build structure on a long finish. Drink now through 2025. 252 cases made."
A roughly 70/30 blend of Weber and Shea Vineyards aged in predominantly 1 and 2 year old barrels this blend is distinctly Weber in the nose with Shea providing some underlying structure and density to the mid-palate. Bright red fruits dominate the nose and palate in a more open textured and approachable package. Highlighting the more delicate and pretty nature of the 2017 vintage, this wine is drinking well now and should cellar well over the next 6-8 years.
