“The new King’s Row is another thriller, reminiscent of the finest 2015 reds as it demonstrates the luscious nature of this vintage. Aromas and initial palate flavors feature bright cherry, raspberry and fresh blackberries entwined with baking spice. These warm fruit notes are layered with velvety rich chocolate and vanilla bean in a wine that’s full bodied and structured with approachable tannins. This Kings Row finishes with a lengthy and lively impression of this exceptional Estate.” - California Wine Advisors
