Focused and piquant with a smack of black pepper, and lifted by the scent of dried roses. Delivers immediately with ripe Rainier cherries, a touch of dark chocolate, and a depth of black tea and licorice. This California grown Rhône varietal blend delivers both power and balance, with a seemingly endless finish.
96 Points, Robert Parker
A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Viognier, the 2019 Christo has a deep ruby-purple color and alluring scents of blueberry jam and cassis with accents of loamy earth, violet, coffee beans and iron. The full-bodied palate is powerful yet silky, with seamless acidity and gobs of pure violet perfume on the long, layered finish. It's easy to drink now but offers a decade or more of cellaring potential.
