A reinforcing barrel program develops aromas of molasses and smoked plum with black currant and raspberry. It’s simply beautiful on the palate with black cherry, plum and blackberry flavors, fashioned with a mild tannin structure and finished with a flourish of acidity reminiscent of fresh cranberry and pomegranate. That acid profile and low alcohol bode especially well for the future.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 96 cases

Alcohol: 12.8%
