Layered and evolving, the concentrated boysenberry and blackberry fruit aromas combine with nuances of cocoa, cinnamon and sandalwood. The palate is bold, complex and rich, with wild berry compote and black cherry dancing with touches of vanilla cream and clove. Silky tannins give structure and balance, affording a long and luxurious finish.
94 points, Wine Advocate, Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec. 2009): “…beautifully sweet black and blue fruits…Full-bodied with silky tannins, a terrific texture, and a stunningly long finish…”
91 points, Wine Enthusiast (Dec. 15, 2010): “Very lush and ripe in blackberry, cherry, currant and cassis flavors…a minerality toward the end that smacks of the soil…”
91 points, Ken’s Wine Guide (Dec. 21, 2010): “...full-bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a black raspberry, spice and pepper blend.”
The final blend was 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. Enjoy now or hold 10 to 15 years.
