Ripe fruit, intense with flavors of boysenberries and sweet cherries. Luscious vanilla, caressing the palate from barrel aging in American and French oak. Juicy and silky throughout, with a finish that lingers of black licorice and spicy pipe tobacco.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This dry
red blend is as sophisticated, structured and
balanced as many high-end Cabernets. Made from
old-vine Zin, with Syrah, Cabernet and Petite Sirah
as well, it has a deep, exotic aroma of dark fruit plus
cedar and cardamom. The flavor is richly fruity, the
mouthfeel is firmly textured and the finish lingers
nicely. It’s medium bodied and full-flavored. -J.G.
