Available for:
Lovely aromas of ripe blackberry and plum with refined oak notes of vanilla and clove spice. The rich fruit carries through on the palate with jammy flavors of cherry and black fruit preserves. Layers of complexity and soft tannins allow this wine to linger pleasantly on the palate with a long finish.

Dark and rather brooding, with currant, bitter chocolate and bay leaf accents that persist toward fine tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2024. 3,950 cases made.

Bright medium red. Aromas of redcurrant and huckleberry along with slightly intrusive herb and mint notes. Supple, seamless and fairly fresh but with the light mint-and-herb greenness carrying through on the palate and dominating the wine's red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with easygoing tannins and a hint of lead pencil. This wine struck me as better than its 2015 predecessor but I still get more texture than flavor, with the greenness suggesting incomplete ripeness. (14.2% alcohol)

Green herb, chocolate and cherry aromas are followed by ripe dark-fruit flavors. It could use a bit more acid and tannin structure to stand it up, but it's pretty tasty all the same.
