Very attractive character of black olives and sliced plums. Full body, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish with dried wood and nuts. Complex. Drink or hold..June/2020
A spunky, user-friendly red, with black cherry and toasty spice flavors that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,843 cases made.
The aromas are reserved, with notes of vanilla, nougat and cherry. Plump raspberry and fruit leather flavors that dip in the middle, creating a doughnut hole, flesh it out. The warmth of the vintage carries it away at times, but there is still plenty of enjoyment and value to be had.
