(2005 Vintage) Straightforward, with pleasant raspberry and green tea notes, it strikes a good balance between sweet fruit and juicy acidity. Drink now. Winery Notes

    (2005 Vintage) A dense, dark plum in color, the wine offers aromas of black cherry, raspberry, toasty oak, nutmeg, and cloves. Luscious flavors of blackberries, cherries, cocoa, cedar, and vanilla lead to a full, well-textured finish.
