This wine is classic Wildcat! It opens with bass notes, raspberry, cherry, soy, a hint of barbeque, and the floral note of rose petals. The entry is focused and slightly lean; melding into a savory, harmonious mid-palate like red velvet cake, cherry and chocolate with crushed-up berries with rocks thrown on top. The tannins are fine-grained and slightly grippy. The finish of this compellingly delicious wine is very lingering.

Wine EnthusiastFrom the western edge of Sonoma Valley, this robust, full-figured wine took on considerable power in this vintage. It exhibits elusive fruit before peeling back bittersweet layers of cranberry, orange peel and tea. After fresh rose on the nose, it adds an element of char to the finish.
