Rich nose filled with field berries and baking spices. Intergrated tannins and a more restrained old world feel to the palate and a notable finish.

A rich, yet balanced California Bordeaux blend. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the wine and makes it a little one dimensional, but there is enough acidity to keep things fresh and interesting. Perfect for grilled steak!

This puts me in my happy place. Tobacco and ripe berries on the nose. The palate is filled with cigar smoke as if you just wandered into some good ol' boys private club. A good bit of spice, flowers, and blackberries here, as well. At 14.9%, this will help take you some places. Definitely feels more Old World than New, this is nice stuff.

Took a while to open up. Figs, wet flowers, buttered toast, and chocolate aromas with a some alcohol. Lime acidity, flavors of nutmeg, blackberries, honeydew, plum, and something reminiscent of a forest fog. Bright up front, immediately followed by an intense dryness. Finishes with wood, like pressing your tongue on a 2x4, but not unpleasant. This wine brought up a lot of fond memories, odd how that can happen.
