Plush yet balanced with a wonderful mix of fully ripened red berry, cherry, currant and rose with a perfect dash of spice from French oak that adds a well-rounded texture, with a long and soft sensuous finish encouraging you to enjoy another juicy sip.
Pair with any of your favorites, including grilled meats, pork, fish, appetizer of courses, and more... like a generous plate served with sauteed meatballs in wine sauce. Oh Yeah!

93 Points, Vinous
A great example of where Cabernet's structure and depth are balanced by Syrah's jammy fruit-forward flavors. Savory aromas of dark berries, cassis, baking spices and vanilla that intermingle with earthy notes of dried tobacco, cigar box and saddle leather. Notes of dark fruit flavors carry on to the palate, with dark chocolate, vanilla and a hint of black currant.

Aromas bright orchard fruit, lemon confit and white flowers. The palate is crisp, fresh, ripe and savory all at once... a nice interplay of honeyed citrus fruits in the mouth, with a light to medium weight, juicy acidity presenting flavors of Asian pear, nectarine and Rainier cherry with a smooth textured finish of new French oak.
Deep, chewy tannins and savory tertiary notes, with a rich midpalate. Fresh, wild blue and black fruit with ripe Bing cherry, and subtle elderflower. Rustic touches of olive tapenade, with layers of boysenberry...
