Winemaker's Notes

Violets, raspberry jam, dark chocolate, fresh coffee berry, vanilla, brown sugar, and a hint of earth and bay laurel on the nose. In the mouth the flavors have very good impact, intensity, and length; the texture has some chewy density to carry the flavors from initial impact through the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and rambunctious, with black raspberry and spicy vanilla aromas leading to lively red currant, pepper and toasty oak flavors that suggest patience is warranted. Best from 2009 through 2012. 627 cases made."
