"...offers a smoky, meaty, barbecue-laced bouquet of dark fruits as well as a rich, full-bodied, nicely concentrated and textured style on the palate. It's another impeccably made, totally delicious wine from winemaker Blair Fox. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
"Plump and zesty, showing layered blackberry, grilled anise and pepper flavors that finish with refined tannins." ~ Wine Spectator
"...bold, juicy and flavorful. A blast of dark cherry, smoke, leather, tobacco and licorice gives the wine its bold, exuberant personality. This is another absolutely delicious appellation-level wine in the Fess Parker lineup." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
Blackberry, blueberry, red plum scents jump from the glass followed by smoke, dried tobacco and white pepper. You won't miss dark fruit flavors of black cherry, plum and blackberry with dried herbs, dark chocolate and smoked meat rounding out the palate.
