This wine’s beautiful dark, magenta color is matched by its lovely nose of cherries, chocolate, tobacco and red fruits. On the palate, it has a wonderful, welcoming texture and flavors of ripe raspberry, black cherry and leather.
90 points, Beverage Testing Institute (Feb. 13, 2012): “Aromas of cassis, vanilla, peppermint bark and pickle with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tangy, spicy poached pear, cedar and earth accented finish with fine, chewy tannins.”
Drink now or cellar up to 10 years.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
