This winery really stepped it up after the first couple of vintages and are producing some great wines. Deep purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, graphite, slight cedar and baking spices. Full bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, this is juicy with great cassis fruit. A bit of underlying graphite and char. Some complexity but more delicious than contemplative. Nice finish. This would match well with roasted or grilled meats or veggies but worked great with vegetarian chili. Drink over the next ten to twelve years.
