Northern Exposure

This wine offers a generous bouquet of scorched earth, kirsch, strawberry, and black raspberry. Full-bodied, it has excellent breadth and depth, succulent flavors, and a long, savory finish. There is enough structure to support 3-5 years of further development and it should drink well through 2022. - The Wine Advocate
