Notions of berry compote, red licorice and pie filling show a purity of fruit, framed with spiced aromatics of cedar, cassis, caramel and cinnamon. The fruit has almost a candied essence to it as it drips confection-like tones. On the palate, the 2011 Springboard is juicy and long, intensely flavored with mouth-watering red fruits. Tannins are ripe, sweet and flood the palate with layers of texture. With plush mouthfeel matched against bright natural acids, the wine holds a finish long after the last sip.
