Baked cherry and cassis overlay warm earth and sweet baking spices in this red, which is solidly structured, with sinewy tannins coming into play and charred alder notes adding to the dark, brooding frame.

Rated 91/100 Jeb Dunnuck

A cuvée offering a concentrated nose of cassis, licorice, black cherry and tar, with ripe, well-structured tannins, intense fruit, and a long, lingering finish.  A food-friendly wine that is especially good with bold, flavorful red meat preparations such as pepper-rubbed steak and lamb tagine.
