Winemaker Sherman Thacher Notes
This wine is clear and bright, with a Medium plus intense purple core, fading to pale purple rim. Legs are present and are slow and sheeting, with a slight saturated color. On the nose, this wine is clean and developing, with medium plus intense aromas of blackberry, blueberry, pan grille, ripe black plums, black peppercorn, tobacco leaf, vanilla, oak and smoke. On the palate, this wine is dry with medium plus chalky tannins, a medium fleshy body, medium plus spicy alcohol, and medium plus flavors of ripe blackberry, blueberry, sweet cream, ancho chiles, black pepper, vanilla and chalky minerals. The finish is medium plus in length, with lingering chalky tannin, warm alcohol and complex flavors, both sweet and savory. This is a wonder ...more... ful wine, with generous fruit and tannin. It should age for 4-5 years, developing some hedonistic (gamey) character which adds counterpoint to it’s strength and freshness. This wine would pair well with balsamic glazed pork loin, grilled lamb chops, Tri Tip, or other hearty fare.
