Winemaker's Notes

The color is a dark ruby red. There is a dominace of red berries with a combination of power and freshness that carries over onto the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"This red shows the dark, ripe, lush fruit of the vintage, with fig, plum and blackberry aromas and flavors tumbling over a solid graphite underpinning. The long, velvety finish holds your interest."

the fruit aroma, lighter bodied than expected, smooth, with a lenghty finish. Rubbed Brisket was a bit much, will try with pasta next.

Everyone loved this wine after dinner and skiing. I may want to buy a case of this at this price. It has the taste of a much more expensive rhone wine.

This fresh, dry, and robustly-flavored red is appropriately tannic, resulting in a peppery finish that lingers on the tongue for a while. Intense taste of red fruits can come across as strong sometimes, so it should be paired with savory dishes like tomato-sauce pasta, red meats, and savory cheeses.
