Traditional in style and approachable, with aromas of brick dust, dried berry, tobacco and leather. Feels flush and just concentrated enough, while the flavors of baked berry, sweet plum and earth work well together. Finishes round and solid. A very good value.
Dry, spicy and firm on the nose, with just enough cherry and plum to make it attractive. Juicy, fresh and lithe in the mouth, with medium oak, earth, berry and plum flavors. Solid and slightly woody and peppery on the finish.
Fresh raspberry and plum aromas offer an inviting opening that’s simple, easy and clean. That’s pretty much the wine in a nutshell: it’s bright and fresh, with lightly spiced red-berry and plum flavors. Focused and uncomplicated.
At first this is lactic and heavy, but later it becomes charred and toasty. Its feel is full, round and fairly smooth, with baked plum, berry, vanilla and chocolate flavors. The finish is toasty and solid. Good for a 50,000-case production.
