BRONZE MEDAL: 89 points

Judges Comments A classic expression of Bordelais varietals blended to create a very balanced wine. The dark purple hue is laced with classic perfumes of violets and spices. The wine is well structured and driven by acidity rather than tannins. A medium bodied result and approachable in its youth.

BRONZE MEDAL: 85 points

Judges Comments Made in a style which is simple, clean and fruit focused. The bright purple wine is intensely grape and currant flavored while it expels tannins that are similar to black olive skins. Rich fruits and juicy acidity are cleverly linked up for a finish that is well balanced.
