(From 2010 Vintage) Plum, spice, earth, dried herb and sweet oak aromas. Medium body with well-integrated fruit, spice and oak flavors. Balanced acidity and tannin give a long finish with flavors that linger.
"Delicious purity of fruit, with ripe, rich, concentrated blackberry and boysenberry jam flavors, mixed with anise, cedar and black cherry. Shows little in the way of oak, finishing with a tight beam of rich flavors and ripe, intense, polished tannins. Best from 2004 through 2012. 1,767 cases made."(JL)
