Powerful, mineral- and spice-accented red fruits and candied owers on the expansive nose. Palate-staining raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors pick up a hint of vanilla and turn sweeter with aeration. Shows impressive clarity and spicy thrust on a very long, red-fruit-driven finish framed by fine-grained, harmonious tannins. 94 Points - Josh Raynolds - Vinous

 

WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES

The charming, expressive 2016 Nysa begins on the nose with ripe strawberry and candied cherry, and displays loamy characteristics with time in the glass. The palate is quintessential for Nysa and the greater Dundee Hills: silky weight undergirded by fine tannin and acid, with concentrated red fruits on the midpalate. The finish displays sassafras and mushroom notes that should develop further in bottle over the next 15 years.
