Winemaker's Notes

Concentrated aromas of wilberries, tobacco and vanilla. A full palate with rich, black fruit flavors and a long, lingering finish with a touch of black pepper spice.

Critical Acclaim

"This is juicy, with raspberry and fig fruit flavors followed by spice and licorice notes on the open-knit finish. Drink now through 2009. 5,000 cases imported."
