"The 2018 High Fidelity Red Blend has a medium to deep garnet-purple color, opening with seductive notes of redcurrant jelly, blackberry coulis, black raspberries and spice cake followed by nuances of red roses, cedar chest and pencil lead with a waft of underbrush. The medium to full-bodied palate quivers with compelling energy, framed by finely grained tannins and bags of freshness, finishing with loads of red fruit and perfumed layers."
