Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) A blueberry and boysenberry pie! So ripe and jammy you could spread it on an English muffin! A huge wine with intensely concentrated fruit that is framed by abundant tannins that are gripping, yet surprisingly soft and silky. There is nothing angular about this wine. A sweet, rich mid-palate coats your palate and leads to a long, lasting finish.
