"Vivid ruby. Ripe dark berries and a hint of spiciness on the nose and in the mouth. In a plush, open-knit style, showing good heft and a hint of jamminess on the gently tannic, slightly warm finish." (VM)

"This bottling shows a roasted berry aroma with a pinch of herbs on the relatively subtle nose. The palate offers flavors of smoked hickory, strawberry and mulberry framed by balanced tannins and honed acidity. -Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winemaker Notes:
This fruit was harvested over a period of several weeks to attain ideal ripeness, picked in the early hours of the morning, and destemmed into fermenters. During ferment, the juice was pumped over twice a day and gently pressed after two weeks where it aged for fourteen months on French and American oak.
