Wine Review: This pitch black colored wine opens with a black licorice bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and smooth. It also displays a slightly dry mouthfeel. The flavor profile is savory blackberry with hints of black currant and a touch of oak. The finish is rather dry and a bit subtle. This wine would pair well with a NY strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Potent aromas of chocolate and raspberry jam laced with baking spices make an enticing first impression, lavishly surrounded by floral notes of lavender and violet, and supported by earthy, mineral notes. The wine offers an elegant, seamless, full-bodied attack with loads of cocoa, blackberry and black cherry fruit. Malleable tannins fill the palate and give a well-proportioned shape to the wine. Structured in the style of a classic Bordeaux, this wine will age gracefully for 10 to 20 years. In its youth, it will benefit from decanting.
