Our Winemaker's Comments

Aromas of dark berry fruits with balsamic notes. Intense, solid, well structured palate with spicy fruits and a long, persistent finish. This wine will drink well in its youth but with structure to ensure bottle maturation.

Reviews

Fruit and barnyard flavors combine to give a wine that, while on the rustic side, still has an attractive juicy quality. It is full bodied; its acidity combines with a ripe plum flavor. - Wine

Enthusiast

Medium-bodied, with dried olive notes to the berry and wild cherry flavors. Firm and juicy on the well-spiced finish. - Wine Spectator
