2010 Proprietary Cuvee
Aromas of baking spice, currants, blueberry, blackberry and vanilla are present almost immediately upon pouring. Given time in the glass a solid core of black cherry and high-toned red currant emerge against a backdrop of leather, smoke, earth and violets. The texture and is round and velvety on the palate with a contrasting freshness and acidity that make this wine atypically light on its feet for being so full bodied. Finely integrated tannins and subtle minerality further contribute to a long complex finish.
