Wine Profile from Winery 


Aaron: I enjoyed this bottle.  A nice forests nose which was still full of berries and moss.  The flavor is really full and dense with allspice and pepper coating smoked cedar. I felt this was expectedly old-world flavor and I enjoyed it.  90 points

Teri: The nose smells like you are sniffing chocolate covered raspberries out of an oak box (for me that is a positive attribute). The wine is a pleasant blend of fruit and sweet oak. The flavors cascade from clove, raspberry, cedar, leather, to finally wild berries. Surprisingly for the rich flavor the body of the wine is on the lighter side making it (dangerously) easy to drink. 91 points
