WINEMAKER'S NOTES: Shorter fermentation time allowed us to capture all of the fruit character and reduce the tannins. Small French and American oak barrels to develop the wonderful flavors of rich caramel, vanilla bean, and roasting coffee aromatics. Vibrant color, unbridled berry character and plenty of texture

Always a 10. This wine is bold, velvety, chocolatey, and rich. For $12.50 at Total Wine it's a STEAL.

Always been one of my favorites. Velvety and chocolate with a subtle berry finish and not too sweet. Was thrilled to see it by the glass on the menu at Bar Red Beard.

Tar and licorice, good viscosity. Good wine at this price point.

Too jammy for me but dry enough to drink it down.

Very smooth and velvety. Easy to drink and an enjoyable wine for apps or drinking alone.

Extracted blackberry and black cherry juice saturates the palate. Enough chocolate and vanilla to kill a cow. This is a style that is just overwhelming for me. Been taking some time away from vino to freshen my palate, and it seems really sensitive to extracted, fruit forward styles.
