Bright scarlet color. Musky red and blue fruits, pungent flowers and a hint of succulent herbs on the perfumed nose. Bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors show appealing sweetness and building floral and spice topnotes. Finishes impressively long and floral, with a lingering cherry note and smooth tannins that sneak in late.
Score: 93 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 2020
Founded by Russ Raney in 1986, Evesham Wood is based on the idea that small is beautiful. To maintain a high level of quality, we rely on two basic principles: obtaining optimally ripe low-yield fruit from the best possible sites in the Willamette Valley, and using minimal intervention in the winemaking process. That approach is alive and well today, and is evident in every bottle we produce. Winemaker and owner, Erin Nuccio
