Big juicy, fruit forward powerful black anf blue fruits, jammy, but holds thru the whole palette. Tannins and acid in balance and enough to stand up tonthe alcohol. Baking spices, vanilla, dill bring it all together...i miss American oak..

Blend of 78% Cab Sauv, 12% Merlot, 7% Cab Franc, 2% Petit Verdot & 1% Malbec, deep Ruby red, concentrated youthful aromas of ripe black fruit, subtle nutty spice & creamy chocolate. Aged 24 months, 85% new & 15% 1-year used American oak. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of sweet plum, black cherry & dried blackberries, with bits of oak & cacao trying to peek through. Tannins are present, but just a tad persistent, reflecting its youth. Long & elegant finish with vanilla & slight mineral tang. Drinks well now, continue to develop over the next 15-20 years, why wait it’s perfect now! Outstanding! Tasting Sample!

Well crafted and extremely consistent - a bit much for turkey but indulgent fun nonetheless

Smooth tannins. Dark berry flavor with a hint of cocoa and tobacco. Peppery on the way out. Nice balance all around.
