Plush, showing good underlying grip, this red plies the generous structure with black cherry, plum, licorice, wild herb and spice flavors. Balanced, with time to give, finishing long and evoking earth and mineral elements. Drink now through 2029. 1,100 cases made.

Aromas of mature black-skinned berry, baked plum, mint and violet mix with whiffs of dark culinary spice. The ripe chewy palate doles out raspberry jam, fleshy black cherry and licorice set against firm, polished tannins. The juicy fruit flavors deftly support the hefty alcohol. Drink through 2022.

A chewy and juicy red with chocolate, berry and spice character. Medium body. Savory finish. Drink and enjoy.
