First time trying this winery. The winemaker is Jeff Ames who makes some great wines at TOR and other wineries. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, chocolate, slight lumber and spice. Full bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, this is delicious. Cassis with some cedar and spice. Tightly layered complexity, it unwinds nicely in the glass. Long finish. This will improve with a few years in the cellar but is drinking well now. Drink over the next twenty years. Great on its own, this needs big food right now. Pot Roast would go well.
