Terrific texture on this full-bodied blend. Bursting with warm aromas of plums and blackberries. An impressive debut.

Cheryl Cottrell-Smith rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fantastic! Local and hearty, this full-bodied red wine pairs best with a nice manchego cheese or Berkshire pork. Yum.
This was a soft tannin vintage for the Cabernet and Merlot varieties, while the Cinsault and Pinot Noir turned out to be remarkably aromatic. All of these lots were treated to a variety of maceration conditions; hot, cold, long, short. All of them completed malolactic fermentation in barrels and were aged in these barrels - with two rackings along the way - for 8 months. 41% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Pinot Noir, and 6% Cinsault.
