This is former baseball great Tom Seaver's wine project. He may be a celebrity but this is a serious project with the wines being made by Thomas Rivers Brown. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose is great with minerals, cassis, roasted herbs and a slight minty note. On the palate, this is concentrated. Black raspberry fruit over a dry forest floor. The roasted herbs carry thru to the finish. Firm tannins. This needs five to seven more years to really open and then it should be good for another twelve to twenty. A delicious wine on its own, with air or cellaring this will work well with roasts and heavier meat dishes.
