Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Delivering great depth from a diverse set of top rated vineyards, this deep crimson wine displays sophisticated aromas of lavender, pencil shaving and black fruits. The dense, viscous palate fills the mouth with boysenberry, red currant, and cassis. The long polished finish is graced with subtle notes of cigar box and is fully rounded by the velvety tannins.

    Nice balance of acid and fruit. Dark red bordering black indicative of 2012 napa fruit. Low acid, rounded tannins, great fruit (dried berries) Tabacco notes and no green notes.
