    Winemaker's Notes:

    Beautiful red/purple color with aromas of black cherries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and baker's spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish. Don't be concerned if you find yourself inhaling deeply from your glass, over and over—it is just your nose's way of telling you that it wants its fair share!

    This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends. Goes great with everything from hamburgers and chicken to pizza and mild cheeses. An awesome value to boot.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby-red. Dark fruits, chocolate, roasted herbs and licorice on the nose, with attractive spicy lift. Sweet and seamless but energetic, with good lift to the spicy blackberry and violet flavors. This dense, smooth wine finishes with serious broad tannins and very good length. (A second bottle, meriting 87 points, was fatter and softer, showing more nutty oak and a suggestion of prune.)

    Underbrush, incdense, spice box, and black cherry; excellent flavors in need of more depth.
