A dense and brooding red, this displays rich black cherry, blackberry, vanilla and chocolate aromas and flavors. Not as fluid as some of its peers, but complex, solid and long. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases made.
James Suckling: 93pts
Extremely pretty bouquet here of brambleberry bush, chocolate, mocha-scented oak and cocoa. Full body, refreshing acidity, some really nice structure and a chewy finish. Drink now.
Wine Enthusiast: 95 pts
Aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, clove and ground pepper mingle with fragrant blue flowers and a whiff of toast. Concentrated and savory, the full-bodied palate doles out blackberry jam, mature Marasca cherry and exotic spices. Velvety tannins lend finesse, while fresh acidity keeps it light on its feet
