Winemaker's Notes

This is an impressive wine from a warm and complex vintage. The aroma is deep and concentrated with distinct black cherry extract, ripe plum, a hint of cedar smoke, and a dark chocolate spiciness. The flavor and mouth-feel are voluptuous and satiny. The texture is juicy all the way through to a very long lasting sweetness with mild tannin afterthought. Amazing with chocolate covered hazelnuts, chateaubriand and roasted turkey.

Critical Acclaim

"Smooth and round, beautifully polished, plush and generous with its spicy, floral nuances to the dark berry, cherry and tar flavors, sailing through the long finish."
92 Points

"Medium red. Sweet red and dark berries on the nose, with musky notes of underbrush, tobacco and roasted coffee. Big and broad, with very concentrated sweet raspberry and strawberry liqueur flavors showing impressive depth and richness along with striking purity. Lush, velvety and long on the back end, finishing on pure, precise strawberry and raspberry notes."
