Winery Notes:
“Once again this wine takes on another personality. In the past it has seen its influence of the Northern Rhone, Southern Rhone, and Spain. This time we are feeling much like a love child, of Chateauneuf du Pape and California.” -Jeff Cohn

Tasting Notes
Opaque black purple color with aromas of grilled meats, black berries, raspberries and touches of black cherries with wisps of herbs de Provence and roasted coffee. Full bodied and concentrated. Blackberry and raspberry jam ooze from this wine. But then all the wild side starts to show, with Asian spices, smoke meats, cedar and fruit leather finish.
