At first taste I was a little disappointed, so we put it aside. Upon revisiting it the next day it had opened up and balanced out wonderfully and was a very enjoyable. I cannot explain why or how it changed so drastically but I am glad it did.

Red cherry, rhubarb and strawberry. M acid, body and tannin. On the palate the fruit becomes darker-black cherry and plum. Chocolate. Lean with a long finish. Not overly oaked or manipulated.

Yummy blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Cab Franc and other grapes.

Red cherries dominate. Bright red. Medium body. Hint of spice. Medium acidity. Mellows after opening up.

Big red wine with hints of cocoa and berries. It paired very well with a grilled chicken.

This is a wonderful expression on the wine makers commitment to creating something local and special. We look forward to returning to sample their offerings.
