Winemaker's Notes

Bing cherry, plums, and exotic spices on the nose. Framed by fine, textured tannins that lead to a creamy palate of red berries, bramble, black fruit, and dark chocolate. Balanced acidity throughout that finishes long with tobacco and wood spice.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright violet color. Sexy raspberry and cherry aromas, along with notes of rose, sassafras and Asian spices. Sappy and refreshingly bitter in the mouth, with intense flavors of wild red berries, rose pastille and anise. Perfumed and spicy on the finish, which clings with impressive tenacity."
