    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ripe black cherry/raspberry nose, with notes of pepper, licorice, chaparral, and tobacco. Rich black fruit on the palate. Full, viscous. Well-coated tannins and a long, layered finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Not surprisingly, given the name on the label, this one stood out in our tastings for its deeper fruit and its sophisticated layering of ripe blackberries, peppery spice and suggestions of dark soils. Full in body and fully ripened, the wine is deep and supple from first to last on the palate, and the late-arriving tannin that puts it rough stamp on the finish is nothing more than one should expect from this combination of maker and source. There will be those who are happy to drink it now with chewy chunks of charred chuck, but count us as among those who will lay it away for five to ten years while it rounds out.

    Connoisseurs' Guide

    A deep, dark well of sweet black cherry juice, savory scents of black mushrooms and equally black tannin, this has the chewy intensity of well-grown petite. It's suited for long aging, needing time to allow its complexity to blossom.
