Another new winery for me (which is always fun). Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black cherries, a charred earthiness and black olives. On the palate this has light tannins, black cherry fruit with a nice back bone of acidity. This is young but drinks well on its own. It should gain some complexity. Hold for a three years and drink over the next five to seven. It will go well with stews and fowl.
Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
