(made with organic grapes): Red-ruby. Pure, complex nose offers blackberry, blueberry, violet, licorice and a whiff of chocolatey oak. Ripe but juicy and firm, with harmonious acidity framing the dark berry, black cherry and saline flavors and keeping the wine's sweetness under wraps. Finishes with chewy, ripe, palate-dusting tannins and very good soil-driven length. Has the structure to age. A superb value.

Full bodied and fruity. May just need a year in the celllar.

My first experience with this wine was not positive. I found it very unappealing. Very raw and fruity. no sophistication. high alcohol. I am going to try again in a day and hopefully it will have opened up and offer some expression.
