Elkhorn Peak Cellars
Region: Napa Valley, CA
A delightfully lightweight wine, this will serve nicely as your summer red selection. I'm am constantly amazed by the quality to price ratio of the Elkhorn Peak Cellars wines. Here's another to stock up on.
Lovely pale ruby in color, its translucence indicates its weight and mouthfeel. The aromas of fresh red fruits, wet stone and rose petals are commanding, and the flavors to follow are alluring. The initial sip reveals red raspberries, currants and cranberry with subtle tannins. The acid has a balancing effect as the wine evolves with flavors of cola, green tea, farmyard and a hints of caraway seed. A walk through nature in a glass. I could drink this wine every day!
