Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Very dark, violet with black notes.Intense spices accompanied by soft green pepper, characteristic of this variety. There are toasted, vanilla, and smoke aromas from barrel aging, a very elegant aroma, a divergence from the traditional varieties.

This is a high-bodied wine, very gentle and rich, combining many flavors. It is highly complex and leaves a velvety, sweet sensation, lots of tannins from the attack to the end, but very sweet. The oak combines well with the variety's spices; it is a long wine, leaving a sensation of maturity.

Critical Acclaim

"Precise and savory, with a powerful cocoa powder accent to the intense cherry, wild berry and currant flavors. Concentrated notes of clove and olive carry through to the finish. Drink now through 2018. 13,000 cases made."
