On the nose; nice perfumed, floral, medium & dark red fruits; blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, plum and some strawberries on the edges, light herbal notes & pepper, dark, dry soils with a touch of funkiness, fresh dark violets with a touch of red florals.

The body is full. The tannins are big, firm, rounded and just a bit sticky. The fruits are ripe, have a creamy presence and have a slightly candied quality. Blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries, black plum, black raspberries, cherries and a little strawberries. The length, structure, tension and balance are nicely knitted together. Dry top soils, crushed dry rocks, light spice & pepper, just a hint of herbaceous notes, soft leather, tobacco leaf, bright red flowers with a light presence of violets. Acidity is round and beautiful. The finish is ripe, round, fruit driven and well polished.

Photos of; another vista from their tasting room, lilies that are all over their tasting room, the tasting room in the original old building and the stainless steel tanks in their modern cellar.
