- ReviewNot Rated
"(aged in French oak for ten months in French oak): Vivid purple. Smoky blackcurrant, cherry and violet aromas show very good clarity and zesty mineral lift. Juicy and focused on the palate, with the bitter cherry and dark berry flavors becoming sweeter with air. Smoothly combines power and finesse, finishing with strong punch, sneaky tannins and lingering berry and floral qualities. Delivers outstanding value, especially for a difficult vintage."

"Lemberger was planted here in the 1970s, and Kiona still carries the torch for the grape. Earthy, gamy, soft and smooth, it has a quickly maturing flavor set, built upon chocolate and cherries, with dusty tannins."

"An amazing wine made from 100% Grenache organically farmed and aged four months in French and American cooperage, the 2013 Tinto shows boisterous and exuberant black cherry/kirsch liqueur notes, medium to full body, terrific purity and exuberance. This is a delicious bistro-style fruit bomb that is pure and succulent. Talk about hedonism! Drink it over the next several years."
