Wine Review: This dark ruby opens with a cedar and black cherry bouquet with hints of oolong tea. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round, bright, and savory. The flavor profile is graphite and concentrated marionberry blend with notes of black tea and cedar. I also detected some hints of stewed black plum, black pepper, and nutmeg mixed in. The finish is dry, and its tannins build-up stick around for a very long time. This wine benefits from some aeration. I would decant it and serve it with a New York strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The depth of the ruby red color indicates a wide and generous wine. At first, the bouquet is all about black fruits and opens out on very soft and sweet spices. The freshness of the mouth and the finesse of the tannins make the wine very silky, and the crunchy mouth in the middle will be quite surprising. It is a lively wine that will reveal itself a little bit more every time you'll taste it.
