Winemakers Notes

Blackberry, wild boysenberry, plum, sassafras and shiitake mushroom aromas come to life in the glass. The rich and broad tannins accentuate the focus of berry and exotic spicy flavors across your palate. Young, yet sophisticated and sexy. Extremely cellar worthy.

Harvest Notes

Following a labor-intensive growing season due to early spring rains, a cool summer and mild fall weather extended the ripening season in 2005. This long, slow maturation period permitted flavors and color to develop to high levels, and the absence of weather threats or temperature extremes allowed fruit to be picked at optimum ripeness. The fruit quality was extremely high, contributing to balanced and elegant wines with concentrated flavors and intense color.
