Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored wine opens with an attractive and fragrant boysenberry bouquet with a hint of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and shows nice concentration. The flavor profile is a very tasty ripe blackberry and plum blend with a hint of anise and mild oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins fade away nicely. I would pair this wine with duck breast. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Intense garnet, almost opaque. Aroma: Great finesse and complexity, suggestions of mature fruit, subtle notes of tobacco and toast. Palate: Dense and solid, balsamic notes. Robust tannins providing structure and backbone for extended bottle ageing. Dishes: Best with game dishes and the creamy texture of soft cheeses.
