Deep ruby. Alcoholic on the nose. Spicy. Herbaceous notes. Bitter dark chocolate. Short acidic finish. Needs some time to mature.

A spirited blend of Petite Syrah, Sangiovese, Cab Sauv and Syrah. Neat profile. Pepper, tobacco, and nutmeg compliment the black cherry.

Okay. But didn’t measure up to our Bordeaux friends.

Needs time to decant, but opens magnificently! Dark fruit, a bit of dryness and complex layers.

Medium to dark purple in color with a nose of blackberries, pepper, and tobacco leaf. Dry, full-bodied, with a medium-long tangy finish.
