Rich, lush and full bodied, the 2012 vintage displays intense aromas flavors of blackberry, black currant, cocoa and crushed violet. This wine is velvety with a smooth, lingering finish of toasty baking spices and vanilla. Enjoy this wine now with braised short ribs, rosemary crusted leg of lamb or mushroom stroganoff or lay a few bottles down in your cellar to enjoy in 4 to 6 years.

Wine SpectatorA sturdy, extracted, cellar-worthy candidate. Both firm and concentrated, this delivers a tight mix of dark berry, spice, cedar and loamy earth notes. Tannic now but should gain with time. Drink now through 2024. 9,244 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastStructured from the start, this wine provides succulent boysenberry and blackberry around a full-figured body that's otherwise steeped in vanilla and coffee, the toasted oak quite prevalent. It finishes slightly tart in dried herb and mushroom.
