Purple-colored it exhibits an enthralling nose of smoky oak roses garrigue lavender black cherry and black raspberry. It conceals enough ripe tannin to support 5-7 years of additional cellaring. This layered lengthy effort should be at its best from 2012 to 2024. - Jay S Miller

Strikingly perfumed bouquet of black raspberry cherry pie incense and anise. Lush and creamy with deep sweet red fruit and bitter cherry flavors complemented by notes of exotic candied flowers and licorice. Supple tannins frame the expansive fruit and add definition to the long focused spicy finish.

Ripe and generous offering a supple mouthful of cherry black pepper bacon and spice flavors that rocket through a layer of fine tannins. The spices including cardamom and anise seed come through strongly on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 300 cases made.

From vines planted more than a century ago, this is dark-fruited Grenache that features hints of mint or camphor alongside ample spice. It’s full bodied and supple-textured, round in the mouth without being overblown, finally finishing with a touch of alcoholic warmth. Seems ready to go now–2015.
