Wine Review: This very dark purple wine is almost black in color. It opens up with a cherry and cedar like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is nicely balanced and has a dry mouthfeel with dusty black cherry like flavors with a touch of black current. The finish is very dry and has soft tannins that linger for quite some time. This wine will really appeal to those readers that like a dry red wine. It paired very nicely with a grilled steak smothered in sautéed mushroom and onion in a brown sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 2005 was a drought year with moderate temperatures, creating a dense, dark wine with intense primary fruit character. A rich wine with soft, integrated tannins, this will be enjoyable young, yet will require many years to gain complexity in bottle. An important and cellar-worthy vintage.
