Winemaker's Notes:

An iron fist in a velvet glove... rich, full bodied, and round, with layers of cedar, blackberry and chocolate flavors. On the finish, it is long and toasty, with a tannic grip suggesting it will improve with another five to ten years of further aging. Enjoy this wine with broiled steak, beef empanadas, or lamb.
