TASTING NOTES: As a result, the 2011 SOLO has a core of fresh, crushed red raspberry flavor. The nose is accented with aromas of anise and earth. As the wine opens,lovely floral and violet notes begin to appear. Pleasing acid refreshes the mid-palate in advance of a long finish marked with essence of mineral,stone and flint.
