Winemaker's Notes

The wine is ruby red in color with intense aromas of vanilla and spice. On the palate it is bursting with bright cherry fruit, balanced acidity and exotic spices."

"Sweet, ripe black cherry, and chocolate notes intermixed with notions of camphor and vanilla jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-hued 2004.

"A young wine that showed very well thanks to its bursting ripe fruit, crushed black pepper, and toasty nuttiness. The tannins are lusciously soft and the wine's medium body make it an excellent drink-now proposition."" Wine Enthusiast, 09/05

With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
