Rich supple complex and expressive this is dense with smoky blackberry wild blueberry tomato leaf and exotic spice complexity finishing seamlessly with refined tannins and just enough acidity to keep it all together. Shows tremendous presence. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Very deep purple-black in color the 2011 Velvet Glove is chock full of ripe and spicy blackberries fresh blueberries and creme de cassis aromas that are accented by Chinese five spice notes and hints of chocolate vanilla and some tar. Full-bodied it is ripe and rich with a nice line of acid and medium-firm fine-grained tannins. Concentrated and persistent on the finish it shows beautiful elegance and freshness and is a nicely delineated and expressive example of the varietal and its region

Due to the intensity of our wines, people often assume that they are highly extracted, but we only ferment for 5 - 6 days. The color and flavor profiles come from the Marquis Vineyard Watering Program, to achieve the highest Marquis Fruit Weight, not from long or high extraction.

Broad, ripe and generous, singing with red berry, cherry and spice flavors that join in a lusty chorus as the finish sails on and on. Has depth and power. The structure just melts into the whole package seamlessly, and the flavors seem to scale highe... Wine Spectator.

Rich, ripe and harmoniously balanced, this is dense with blackberry, plum, licorice, cream and spice flavors that don't quit as the finish sails on and on. Has tremendous presence, yet remains supple through the expressive finish. Drink now through 2020.

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has a phenomenal 96% Fruit Weight and is simply awesome. It is immensely complex, from the aromatic fresh flowers and berry fruit to the spices, tobacco, plum, coffee, and several kinds of chocolate – just put it in your mouth and entertain yourself for hours with the array of flavours. The perfect balance of structure and Fruit Weight gives this wine an explosion of flavour, a rich, opulent, silky mouth feel and a length that seems to never end. It is a classic Velvet Glove.
