Winemaker Justin Taylor
Aerated for 60 minutes to open
Dark plum in color with a dark garnet rim.
Nose of wild cherry, pomegranate, blueberry, a subtle smokiness, black pepper, and spice
Full bodied with medium plus tannins and wide cascading legs
Complex and dry showing bold notes of spice, black pepper, pomegranate, cranberries, and cherry cola. Lingering finish with more herbal tones while showing a bit of oak, vanilla, and green bell pepper
This wine just drinks beautifully.
