Winemaker's Notes

"Young and vibrant now, with a great burst of fresh acidity, but with scads of fruit. Explodes on the palate with waves of sweet cherry, blackberry and plum flavors. Tannins are thick and fancy. This is an ager but it would be a shame to miss the youthful vivacity."

On the palate, there is plenty of sweet black fruit, subtly layered with complex spice and toasty oak. Rich and luscious, the wine finishes with an elegant impression of soft tannins and long-lasting flavor.
