    Winemaker's Notes:

    Appearance: Deep ruby red intensity with crimson accents

    Aroma: Complex and layered with black plum and currants, vanilla, sage, and peppercorn, and sweet notes of toasty oak.

    Flavors: Round, full-bodied palate with vibrant dark cherry fruit, sweet herbs and silky mouthfeel. Very supple and elegant, the finely knit tannins highlight bold fruit and sweet tobacco notes, giving a velvety finish.

    Opened with several other bottles over long weekend and this stood out. Nice fruit, good aroma, soft and lush. Glad I bought 2 bottles - will buy more.

    This is one of the few wines I buy repeatedly. Safeway sells this for cheaper price than this site. "Pale garnet hue. Complex scents of wild cherry, vanilla and chocolate with a hint of dust and sweet tobacco. Full, refined tannins and ripe flavors of raspberry and wild cherry. Hints of vanilla and white chocolate in the raspberry-spiked close." So true!
