Concentrated aromas of candled plum and black cherry are complemented by sandalwood, garigue, mushroom and earth. The Fiddlestix is intense without being overwhelming, as flavors of blackberry compote, crème brûlée, and Bing cherry are balanced by good acidity and laced with iron, leather and mineral notes. Remarkably persistent on the palate, smooth tannins leave a lingering impression of ripe summer fruit.

Wine SpectatorSleek, spicy and supple, with floral wilted rose, wild berry and plum flavors that are tight, medium- to full-bodied and balanced, ending with a trim, spicy mix of berry and mineral. Drink now through 2016. 125 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastYou'll find lovely, complex flavors of raspberries, cherries, red currants, spices and smoky vanilla notes from oak in this dry, pleasant wine. It's also very tart, biting into the palate with a cut of acidity, which seems to be a trait of the vintage. Good now, if a little direct.
