A bit too much tomato for me. Cranberry and cherry.

Sipping Fine Wine

Comes from Block 5 in the Dierberg Vineyard which is separated from rest of Vineyard by a small creek, where the soil has more clay and red in color. Aromas of fresh berry fruit and wonderful floral spice. On the palate flavors of cherry cranberry and cola with smoky notes, well balanced. Fine tannins on lingering finish ending with a burst of fruit. Very nice. Give it some hottie age. Tasting Sample.

Block Five is showing its stuff. Needs a few years aging to really blossom though.
