(2014 Vintage) Deep ruby red in color with intriguing aromas of sun-warmed blackberries, ripe plums, with hints of black licorice. A complexity of dark berry fruits unfold on the palate; blackberries and bing cherries along with dark chocolate flavors. Vanilla and cedar oak undertones on the mid-palate further enhance the wine. The overall impression is rich with refined tannins, firm acidity and explosive layers of ripe fruit.
International Wine CellarDark red. Aromas of dark cherry, sassafras and flowers. Big, rich and sweet, with chewy dark raspberry fruit complicated by lower tones of meat, smoke and woodsy underbrush. Finishes with big, broad, dusty tannins and notes of pepper, spice and floral pastille.
