Winemaker's Notes

#11 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Initially dark and brooding this blend offers explosive charred meat, tobacco, and leather aromas. Blackberries, vanilla and sassafras brighten the palate, while the finish expresses a sophisticated richness that fully showcases this wine's complexity.

Critical Acclaim

"A brilliant wine, showing focus, intensity and purity, with an amazing array of flavors that are supple, layered, deep and persistent, built around ripe boysenberry, blackberry, wild berry and huckleberry. Ends with a wonderful lift. Syrah and Viognier. Drink now through 2022. 810 cases made."
