Blend of 98% Cab Sauv & 2% Merlot, blended then aged for 24 months in 50% new & 50% once-used American oak. Deep Ruby color with aromas of black fruit, licorice & minty floral notes. Palate displays rich ripe blackberry & black cherry, hint of sweetness, vivid acidity & the right touch of toasty vanilla oak, still youthful in development. The wine has nicely integrated tannins, still holds some grip on a long finish which should give way to let this wine age for the next decade+. Excellent.

Bordeaux style with earthy and forestry flavors. Cherry fruit is tastefully on the fore palate. Long and full mouthfeel with a decadence that welcome dark cacao.

Still shining bright, Justin meyer’s heyday. Decadent balanced, still has a lot left in the tank.
