Deep briary nose a little poppy seeds, spice and black raspberry fruit with bitter chocolate shavings and coffee oak aromas. A big wine with layers of flavors, bitter cherry, musky, wild flowers and jammy black currant all framed with a little nutty oak and some fine green edginess here as well. The tannins are noticeable, acids bright, both contributing to a little tactile and dusty feel in the mouth but this turns very focused and steely on the backend with cherry skin notes, and a little wild blackberry thing going on. A little chewy and raw and sure to improve. 90pts

Dark purple color but a clear wine and a bit lighter than I anticipated. Really strong and very nice fruit aroma, but I couldn't really pinpoint the aroma. Some sort of berry or currant it seemed. Well balanced - the fruit was strong but not overpowering. Medium finish. I don't recall having too many wines that use the natural yeast from grapes the way Carol Shelton does. I thought it was an interesting idea.

Intensely jammy, black razzberry fruit, vibrant and alive in both nose and mouth, nice hit of black pepper. Smoothly textured in mouth, creamy vanilla oak, and the finish is long and lushly jammy fruit--dangerously good!-From the Winemaker
