Winemaker's Notes:

Upon opening the bottle and pouring, rich cherry, cedar, cocoa, and sweet tobacco aromas with a subtle note of sweet perfume envelop the glass. Upon tasting, the wine coats the mouth in a smooth almost silk-like veil accented by ripe cherry, strawberry and blackberry. Soft integrated tannins and balanced acidity provide for an enjoyable mid-pallet and long finish of vanilla, sweet oak and subtle spices. An excellent choice to accompany grilled meats or game such as venison, angus beef or bison. Our 2005 is enjoyable now and will continue to age well through 2011.
