Complex, intense and nuanced. The palate is full bodied with huge fruit, beautiful balance and a structured, tannic finish. A gorgeous wine!

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. -- Josh Raynolds

Full-bodied, creamy and lush on the palate, it finishes with vanilla and cedar notes. It's delicious in an aged, oaky-red sort of way.- JC

The spices, including cardamom and anise seed, come through strongly on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 300 cases made. — HS

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. JOE CZERWINSKI
