"This is a super-concentrated and richly tannic wine that could age for decades, yet it's rather light in alcohol. It has a deep dark-garnet color, beefy aromas that almost crowd out a blackberry undertone, and mouthcoating berry flavors laced with fine-grained tannins. Best after 2025."
"This little known varietal is found almost exclusively in California and its introduction dates back to the 1880s. With close to only 80 total acres planted for the entire state, it is not surprising that many have never heard of – let alone tasted – this bold beauty.
Deep purple in color with brooding aromas of blackberries and cassis accented by olives and wild plums. Medium-bodied with flavors of mixed berries, currants, and a hint of tobacco." -Winery
