Wine Review: This very dark purple colored wine opens with a black currant bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a spicy black currant and black raspberry blend with notes of integrated old oak. The finish is dry and its very fine tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with a New York strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Beautifully rich and intense nose: cedary oak, cassis, spice, blood plum, cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla. The wine is distinguished by its fine, integrated, chalky tannins that are supported by strong fruit flavors. While generous and elegant upon release, the wine will become more fleshy in the cellars of the patient among us.
