Description

"...another good value from this label. It has lots of classic blackberry fruit, pepper and earth, with the cabernet giving it a hint of herbs and more base notes. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and polished on the palate, with plenty of fruit and texture, it’s well worth drinking." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"Caramelized black currant and dark tobacco leaf aromas make for a rich nose in this bottling from the longtime family producer. The palate packs elderberry and dried violet flavors, with pencil shaving, charred wood and smoky touches. The tannins are full and firm." ~ Wine Enthusiast

"Zesty and well-built, with easygoing blueberry, green olive and pepper flavors. Drink now through 2022." ~ Wine Spectator
