This bomb-shell of a wine will send you reeling with it's toasted cedar backbone and hearty cherry marmalade. With intensely flirtatious flavors of worcestershire and soy sauce, I wouldn't get caught alone with this voluptous wine. - Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
Nice garnet color. Nose of berry and a touch of earth. It actually made my mouth water! Not a hint of heat. Tastes of black cherry, leather, and mineral, with a long finish of black pepper. Drinking VERY well! I'm glad I have another bottle in the cellar!
Nice mineral and leather on the nose. Dark fruits--blackberry and cherry with a touch of pepper. Nice earthy flavors, with strong black fruit. Finish is long and full of pepper. Outstanding - 90 points.
Three and a half glasses
