Our Thoughts.....The greatest compliment that I can give this wine is Kate's reaction when she first tasted it with me - WOW!!
The wine itself fairly blossoms from the glass with an intense aroma of dark fruit and violets; the entry is soft but full and almost inky in texture with distinct flavors of blackberry, blueberry, cinnamon spice, and rich cocoa & coffee. The flavors evolve as you appreciate the length on the palate. Intense, but with velvety tannins and exceptional balance in acidity and fruit. Most remarkably, this wine is not yet fully matured and will continue to develop more mastery over the next 3-5 years in my opinion.

And to top it off, it is packed beautifully in a wooden crate with tissue wrapping and wax seal that make it an excellent Holiday gift candidate.

Do not miss this wine!!
Only 19 six packs are available each bottle is individually numbered.



The Winemaker's Thoughts.....
Intense ruby red color with violet hues. The nose is fruity with hints, cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, elegant scents of spices with pleasant vanilla and chocolate tones. On the palate the entry is dry, full, harmonious, lingering, the right tannin content confirms the rich elegant bouquet. Excellent length and balance.
Food pairings: Ideal for dishes with meat sauce, cheese and cold cuts.
