Intense and bright cherry color. Ripe fruit nose, with hints of ripe red fruit. Mineral notes. Complex and very powerful.
Wine Spectator 91 points: A hard shell of tannins cracks to offer sweet dried cherry and dark chocolate flavors, intense and vibrant, with accents of cranberry, rhubarb and mineral. It's powerful, yet remains light on its feet. Drink now through 2015. 3,000 cases made. -TM
