"For lovers of the rich and ripe Paso Robles style, this is a high-value wine. Aromas of candied black cherry and vanilla pudding meet with roasted game and crushed gravel on the nose. Vanilla holds strong into the palate, where it blends with blueberry syrup and blackened caramel. Well-measured acidity and chalky tannins complete the experience." Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast - 94 points
Appearance: Ruby black core with a ruby rim.
Aroma: Deep black fruits like boysenberry and blackberry, along with red fruit notes of pomegranate and red currant complemented with mulling spices, star anise, clove and sweet vanilla.
Palate: Intense, ripe fruit notes of black currant, blackberry, red cherry along with notes of tobacco leaf, roasted coffee, cocoa powder and a long oak-driven finish. Tannins are velvety and plush while the acidity makes the fruit vibrant, but well integrated.
