Deep berry complemented by toned of mine. Delicious! - Tasted at winery Dec 2010
Smoky and earthy up front on the nose, like charred forest floor. Dark berry compote and sweet tannin. Strong, cabernet frac-like backbone. Spice and acidity lead the palate and ripe currant, strawberry boysenberry come through with a hint of coconut on the finish. - Tasted at winery 4/18/10
