Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) This wine has flavors of black plum jam and ripe loganberries. Hints of oak and a touch of Christmas spice support the fruit. The cooler vintage created a finish with a classical, Old World structure.

    Conflicting themes of high ripeness and tart, raspberry-like fruit in the nose put this bottling on somewhat uneven ground right from the start, and its contradictions are confirmed by its ripe yet unexpectedly lean and lackluster flavors and by its abrupt, slightly tinny finish.
