Winemaker, Ben Riggs and his team have produced a full and flavorsome wine, deep-hued with lifted aromatics and a structured but supple palate. Smooth, rich and generously loaded with mulberries, black cherries and spice on the palate, the finish is long lasting, delicious, dense and fruit-packed. With tannins enhancing the tastes and
richness of food, this is a perfect red meat or pasta accompaniment.
"Vivid ruby. Ripe but energetic aromas of blackberry, cherry, licorice, tobacco and herbs, complicated by cracked pepper and exotic spices; smells like a $50 Napa cabernet. Lush, pliant and sweet, with a layered, chewy texture to the flavors of red and black fruits, bitter chocolate and spices. This is really packed with fruit but there's a litheness to it as well. Finishes with fine, palate-dusting tannins and lingering sweetness. A fantastic value.
