Wine Review: “Garnet color. Aromas of black cherry, plum jam, rich dark soil, and violet honey with a lightly tannic, lively, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, medium-long black cherry, rich garden soil, crushed plum, and cinnamon toast finish with medium tannins and moderate oak. Dense, dark and chewy with earthy complexity, balancing the luscious jammy fruit qualities of new world with earthy qualities of old world wines.”
My Review: Burgundy color, full bodied.  Aroma of jammy berries, particularly dark cherry, and a hot sensation.  Tastes of pepper, dark cherry and other berries, and oak.
