The nose on this wine is subtle like that of the 2016 667, but there are notes of fresh-baked cherry pie, strawberry and violets that mix with more earthy notes of warm, dry hay and white pepper. It’s also a little lighter on the palate than the 667, with tighter tannins. Bing cherry is the standout flavor that arrives right away on the palate, with a slightly herbal finish that gives way to cut cedar very late on the finish.
