About

94

Black garnet color. Aromas of stewed berries and plums, pine, ink, roasted jalapeño, and coconut layer cake with toasted pecans with a velvety, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and an even, charming, medium-long toasted rosemary-olive bread, chocolate genache, and suede finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. An ageable merlot with inky concentration and craveable fruit.

89 Wine Enthusiast

Rounded red-berry fruit meets with vanilla, caramel, smoke & wet soil on the nose of this bottling from a winery near Morgan Hill. Hickory smoke & rich red-fruit flavors start the palate, where grippy tannins lead into a cocoa-laced finish. It needs some time to smooth out.

Product Description:

On the nose, there are hints of chocolate, sugar plum, raspberry & incense. On the palate, there are flavors of fruit cake, blueberry & cherry. This wine would pair best with a spiced pork tenderloin in a cherry-thyme sauce.
