Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet in color this wine opens with intense and piquant aromas of blackberry, black caps, violets and vanilla. It is an explosion of red and black fruits on the palate enveloped in succulent, chewy tannins. In its richness and concentration this wine shows the imprints of the 2003 vintage. It is concentrated with penetrating floral and berry flavors and has a lasting finish. This wine will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring.
