2007 intelligent design cuvée - by wesley ashley wines
On the nose this wine is very aromatic and shows beautiful red raspberry, cherry pie, spice, oak, and candied cherry aromas. I think the combination of these varieties together makes for a very nicely perfumed wine.
On the palate the wine drinks with a bright intensity and shows a variety of berry fruits. It's almost like a mixed berry pie and even shows a hint of vanilla which reminds me of whip cream. It's not an overly complex wine but does seem to be very well balanced and quite fruit forward. It's a light bodied red that drinks like a bold style Pinot Noir and has a nice long berry finish. 88 points
