Wine Review: I was recently out a sales meeting and a group of us decide to treat ourselves to this gem for Oakville. It is almost pitch black in color. It opens with a fragrant and attractive blueberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with very spicy, ripe, and intense black currant flavors. There are also notes of black licorice and black pepper blended in throughout. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins linger nicely. The consensus is that this wine needs some caller time. However, if you can’t resist, decant it for at least an hour and serve it with a pepper encrusted steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Primary aromas of black cherry, plum, cocoa powder and black currant are followed by secondary aromas of raspberries, baker chocolate and briar patch. In the mouth, primary flavors of plums, roasted almond, black cherry and black olive are followed by secondary aromas of blackberry pie filling, vanilla bean and stone fruit. The finish is long and rich with a hint of tannin which points in the direction that this is a wine with ageing potential. Beautifully crafted with wonderful fruit purity, this wine will easily age for the next 7-10 years.
