By on January 27, 2015

Dark purple fruit aromas are joined by hints of bittersweet chocolate, black olive, juniper berry and lime peel. Dense flavors of Chukar Cherries, plum and black raspberry flavors get a nice boost from tannin. That pinch of juniper returns in the suave and luscious finish, which benefits from a lower alcohol profile than many of today’s red wines.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 51 cases

Alcohol: 13.2%
