Mocha dark aromas with black cherry goodness. Smooth and medium-bodied. Delicious! Pressed in French oak barrels then aged in them for 10 months.

Very earthy with mushroom and forest floor aromas. Light-bodied and made in a cool-climate style with sourcherry, beet root notes on the palate. Mouth-watering acidity. Ripe fruit with slightly chalky tannins that are integrating nicely. Tasted Sept/2012.
