Review:
“Intense violet, raspberry, kirsch and black pepper aromas lead off, with a dense structure running underneath. Shows a tight, cohesive feel, lingering on the long aftertaste. 416 cases made.”

Review:
“A chewy, rich wine with mint, eucalyptus and iodine. Full body, velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish.”
