    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Inked and dark deep red with dark violet shadows

    Nose: Complex and attractive nose composed mainly of red fruits such as black cherries, plums and wild berries combined with mocha, cedar, and tobacco. Sweet finish of vanilla and fine herbs.

    Mouth: Soft and juicy tannins. Shows an interesting complexity and full body. Well-balanced, elegant and attractive oak that enhances the fruit to finish with a long and pleasant aftertaste.

    Service and food pairing: Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Really juicy and ripe, with fleshy layers of sweet raspberry and boysenberry fruit riding along red licorice, fruitcake and a nicely embedded vanilla streak. Long, polished finish. Very tasty. Drink now through 2010. 19,653 cases made.

    Vivid ruby. Fresh red berries and candied cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of potpourri and minerals. Fresh, finely etched redcurrant and raspberry flavors are given spine by tangy minerals and framed by silky tannins. Impressively precise on the finish, which repeats the mineral note.
