Tootsie roll aromas and a mellow palate of blackberries, ripe cherries and tight acidity. At the price point I might look elsewhere, but it's not a bad wine, the high point being the finish.

The nose is somewhat mild, but has very pleasing notes of plum, kind of powdery, with cardamom. Dark fruits and roast pork on the mouth. Pretty well balanced, I like the notes of butteriness. Expecting it to be bolder, but it stays kind of quiet.

Peppery earthy nose supported by a plum backbone. Where's the fruit? In the mouth it exhibits nice spice, tea flavors, and big tannins and a peppery finish but to me there's a huge gap where the fruit should be.

From the Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships: 86 points. Silver Medal. Aromas of vanilla wafer cookie, current jam and mincemeat pie follow through on a round, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with menthol, mint, and talc notes. Finishes with a hint of sour cherry, raisin and a chewy tannin fade (tasted on Jun-29-2009)

This wine won a silver medal at the 2009 Jerry Mead's New World International Wine Competition.


Winemaker's Notes:

A powerful red wine, with rich layers of savory blackberry, black cherry and ripe plum. The well-balanced complexity of the fruit leads to a refined toastiness, punctuated by a lingering finish worthy of the time and effort that went into the creation of this full-flavored, full-bodied gent of a wine. The winery recommends pairing this with stuffed veal chops.
