Wine Description

A balance of elegance and power; inky black fruit, spice and white pepper, jammy black cherries, plums, blackberry fruit, truffles, tar, and espresso. Warm and rich in the mouth with a creamy texture; the ripe fruit is well supported by the deep structure of the wine.

Purple in color with black fruit, cherries and whipped cream on the nose. Extremely creamy and ripe fruit with spice and a bit of tartness on the finish. An excellent food wine.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) It comes across like a rustic Zinfandel, but with loads of character and personality, displaying an almost savage intensity to its flavors. This is a wild, adventuresome wine that should drink nicely for several years.

    A little spicy, big fan of this grape & the layer cake conglomerate ; great every day wine. This bottle & many of the LC wines fit the bill of wine for the people & not the way to common snobs. In my opinion the pinky & nose in the air crowd do more harm to the wine world than the guy who drinks it in a red solo cup
