(From 2008 Vintage) Medium to deep garnet. Aromas of ripe cherry and berry notes, backed by ample mocha, oak, and sweet backing spices.
(From 2011 Vintage) Our 2014 is medium to dark garnet in color. It is has fruit forward aromas of dark cherry and plum sauce, with forest floor and oriental spice. The palate is medium to full bodied, with juicy, cherry fruit. It finishes with soft tannins and lingering flavors of plum sauce and earthiness. It is more fruit forward, with darker cherry flavors than in the past, owing to a warmer vintage. Although drinking well now, it will improve with another year in the bottle. It is ideally paired with salmon, ham and pastas with wild mushrooms. Finally, please serve in larger, bowl shaped wine glasses to enhance its aromas! - Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker
