Winemaker's Notes

The color is a very deep ruby red. Look for sun thickened black cherry and cassis stock reduction type aromas, accompanied by licorice and toasted fresh sawn oak and cedar. All these aromas are packed into a box of sweet, floral scents reminiscent of garden violets at evening time. The flavor is very thick of sweet, ripe black fruit flavors including Oregon's famous Marion blackberry, dance all the way through to the end of the palate. This wine is tannin rich, but tastes like the rough corners of the tannin molecules have been sanded smooth. The hauntingly long finish has sweet, fresh black fruit and just a hint of fresh spaded earth. This wine is enjoyable now but the real reward is some years to come. 800 case bottled
