Winemaker’s Tasting Notes – A gorgeous nose of ripe blackberry, accented with suggestions of
star anise and black cardamom, is open and deeply expressive. These rich aromatics continue on
the palate and are complimented by a strong structure with lean undertones of tart raspberry,
cocoa powder and black pepper.

90 Points – Wine Spectator “Dense and well-structured, with brawny black cherry, smoked
spice and anise flavors that take on power toward broad-shouldered tannins.”
