(From 2012 Vintage) Ruby in color, concentrated aromas of wet slate, graphite, boysenberry emerge and lead to a silky palate featuring blackberry, dried herbs and cherry cobbler flavors. The firm tannins and lively acidity frame the ample palate and the sip is complete by an extended finish of minerality
(From 2009 Vintage) The nose opens with bright aromas of cherry and raspberry backed by a hint of leather. Floral notes are complimented by tones of dried orange peel. The entry opens with rich flavors of brown sugar and sweet fruit cake with a touch of spice and clove. The medium bodied mouthfeel features chewy tannins and nicely balanced acidity, leading to elements of juicy red fruits on the finish.
