Revisited. Last tried in 2005 the wine was young and tannic. 10 years later it has smoothed. Dark black with a tawny edge. Aromas of red berries, chocolate and spice. Flavors of dark blackberry, cedar and raspberry. Along truffle and chocolate finish.

90 Points – $39
This Bordeaux styled wine is a blend of wines that have been aged 16 months in French and American oak. Complex in smell this dark red wine exudes the aromas of blackberries, plums and spice. A full mouthful of dark spices, pepper, plum and oak finish in a long smooth fashion. An ageable wine from the small lots program. Very good stuff here.
