Winemaker's Notes

Color: Dark purple.

Aroma: Black cherry, raspberry, truffles and cola/mocha componenents.

Taste: Tightly structured, with the fruit and acid for long-term aging, yet the tannins are soft, smooth, and polished.

At this very early stage in this wine's development the flavors and aromas are mostly fruit-based: predominately black cherry and raspberry. There is a dusty cola/mocha component from the oak, which has not yet fully integrated with the rest of the aromas, but given some time should incorporate seamlessly and contribute another dimension. In another few months the distinctive Sokol Blosser earth and truffle secondary flavors and aromas will begin to appear, the middle will round out, the finish will lengthen, and the wine will become more evolved and complex.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and open-textured, with an earthy edge to the pretty raspberry and tangerine aromas and flavors, finishing silky. Drink now through 2013."
