This was my first time trying a wine from this vineyard.  It is excellent.  Purple in color, ruby at the rim.  The nose has cassis, blueberries, slight coffee, and spice.  On the palate, this has a great texture.  Firm tannins.  Lots of cassis, some blueberries with underlying minerality and dry earth.  Good finish.  This needs seven to ten years and should be good for a decade after that.  It will work with medium and heavier meats and fowl.
