Wine Review: This midnight blue colored blend opens with a gentle blackberry and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is an interesting blend of blueberry with notes of toasted coconut. I also detected hints of boysenberry and black cherry. The finish is dry and its flavors and very dusty tannins so very good length. I would decant this wine in the near term and serve it with braised short ribs with pearl onions and roasted fingerling potatoes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Perfumed aromatics of subtle cedar and eucalyptus mingle with sweet ripe brambly berry, setting the stage for the complexity of flavors to follow. The bright, fresh fruit
