The color is inky, dark garnet with a ruby rim. Perfumed, deep, spicy blackberry, cassis, anise and cedar arise on the nose. The rich, ripe black plum/blackberry entry expands into cassis, dark chocolate, and licorice flavors that finish with ample tannins and hints of truffles, earth and cedar.

This luxury level bottling, which includes 14% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, begins with earthy aromas of loam and cigar wrapper as well as elegant touches of purple flowers, boysenberry fruit and beef. The palate combines dried berries with pine, wrapped in a polished tannic structure. Matt Kettmann
