Winemaker's Notes

Polished, dark fruit with an explosive mid-palate framed by mineral, sage and floral notes with soft tannin that adds structure. Spicy and sumptuous! Long persistent finish rounds out this lush wine. Another mouthful of Kanzler!

Clones 667 and Pommard - aged in a combination of new and older French oak barrels for 11 months and bottled un-fined and un-filtered in August 2010.

Critical Acclaim

"This displays excellent richness, focus and density of flavors, with a mix of dark fruit, as well as spicy cola, raspberry, blackberry, black licorice, berry pie/jam and mocha notes. The flavors gain depth and complexity. Drink now through 2018. 200 cases made."
