The 2002 Termanthia was born in a growing season marked by a dry summer without high temperatures. It has a lovely, floral bouquet of violets and dried rose petals sprinkled over the ripe red berry fruit. The palate is succulent and ripe on the entry with good acidity. It is certainly fresher than either the 2000 or the 2001 with impressive tension and vitality toward the finish. Drink now-2020. In 2003, there was an early bud break and a dry, very hot summer that provoked hydric stress and retarded ripeness due to vegetative shut down.
