Winemaker's Notes

It has deep, dark color, and its full-blown cherry nose is surrounded by toasty French oak. On the palate you'll find sweet fruit of cherry and plum, with hints of leather, cola and vanilla. And the lingering finish hangs on like a jumper who's changed his mind.

Rich cherry fruit and big, intense tannins and flavor. This wine will stay bottle stable and age for at least a decade, or make a beautiful centerpiece to your Thanksgiving, Hanukkah or Christmas table. Big structure, a touch of oak, and every ounce of two years in barrel shine through with a full body and rich mouthfeel.
