Winemaker's Notes:

#4 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Aromatics: Dominant notes of ripe raspberries and dark cherries. Slight traces of wet stone interplay with the fruit and encourage you to taste.

On the palate: Overlapping flavors of boysenberry, dark cherry, traces of nutmeg, savory baking spices and mouthwatering acidity mingle in perfect balance. The distinct fruit grabs your attention with its mid-palate saturation which is the precursor to a long, delectable finish. This is the perfect combination of intensity and elegance.
