Winemaker's Notes

Dark ruby red color with a black core. Dark red fruit aromas with hints of tobacco, chocolate, vanilla, cassis and clove. The mouth-feel is smooth, fruity and has very good acidity. The long finish is balanced with sweet tannins

Critical Acclaim

"Immediately this one shines. The nose offers deep bacon, crusty mineral and hefty, perfectly ripe dark-fruit aromas. Balance is key to the wine's success, with beefy, sweet flavors of black plum offset by some fire and proper acidity. Peppery on the finish, with an overall warm, ripe, toasty personality."
