Wine Review: This wine has a color that is dark red, with a purple hue. The bouquet is a bit muted. On the palate, this wine has a lot of fruit. It is silky and flavorful. This is a big hearty wine. The finish is big, dry, slightly hot, and fairly long. This is a wine to set down for a while. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Enticing aromas of wild berries and flavors of crème de cassis, espresso and bittersweet chocolate tantalize the palate and are complemented by cedar-spice and sweet vanillin notes. Velvety tannins add graceful support to the wine’s supple richness and concentration. Best served decanted in its youth, it will age wonderfully until 2015.
