Winemaker's Notes

"Powerful, dense nose of dark plum, smoke and a hint of blackstrap, with flavors to match. This is a robust, deeply colored and intense, tarry red that is made in a no-holds-barred style. Finish is filled with Bourbon and spice. Best from 2006 through 2010."
-Wine Spectator Smart Buy
