Tasting Notes:

Deep and very complex, with great intensity of cherry fruit and earth-leather accents, this is (as we say) "very serious juice." The mouthfeel is full and rich, with good acidity and firm but fine tannins. The engaging aromas carry through on the palate, where interesting mineral, even faintly saline, nuances appear. (Available fall 2000.)
