WARNING-Biased Review. This is perhaps the most backward wine we have made. Purple in color, slight ruby band at the rim. The nose has boysenberries, charred wood, spice, and slight violet notes. On the palate, this is tight. Medium tannins. Deep but hard to see the bottom. Boysenberry fruit. Good acidity. Long finish. This really needs more air or cellar time. It works with spicy or hearty foods at the moment. Another five years and it should be opening up nicely. Once it opens, the fruit is pinpoint. There is a lot of potential for upside here with proper cellaring.
