Wine SpectatorGraphite and spice aromas give way to blackberry, pomegranate and fruitcake flavors. A bit rustic now, but ends with a beam of pure blackberry. Drink now through 2022. 25,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with black-skinned berry, clove and cooking spice aromas. The straightforward palate shows ripe black cherry, black plum and white pepper notes alongside smooth tannins. Drink soon.
