- 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."

"It offers upfront, voluptuous levels of black raspberry, plum, violets and spring flowers. Full-bodied, decadent and a borderline big fruit bomb, it nevertheless has fabulous purity of fruit and good freshness. It’s a smoking value to drink over the coming 2-4 years"

"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."
