Description

"The idea piggybacks on the signature Stratus red and the grapes are generally cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot, syrah, cabernet franc and the floral bringing outlier viognier. A fine line of silken texture and a salty cut through makes this moderately structured and also variegate enough to drive complex notions and feelings. Really drinkable vintage for a few years forward." - 90 Points, Michael Godel, WineAlign
