Tasting Notes

The sweet sixteen vintage of our flagship wine is lush and age-worthy.  Opening with expressive aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, black pepper, and well-integrated barrel spice which invite the first sip. Full and palate-flooding, with cinnamon, black plum, and berry cobbler flavors. The tannins are firm and will soften beautifully with cellaring. Enjoy!
