Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) The 2008 vintage is a rich garnet color and has aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and cassis. There are also nuances of leather, toasted hazelnut and winter spices. On the palate, this firmly textured wine offers a full mouthfeel with flavors of coffee, chocolate-covered cherries, berry tart and currants. The tannins are very well integrated, making the approachable at an early age. There are multiple layers to this complex blend that reveal themselves through decanting or by giving the wine time to open up in the glass.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2010 Artistry has aromas of toasted hazelnuts and festive Christmas spices. Boysenberries and currants saturate the palate aside flavors of exotic bing cherries. Well-structured tannins round out this vintage with a beautiful, tobacco and spice finish.

    Very dry, not fruity; much better after it opens up

    Needed about 10 minutes after opening to unwind.
