2018 Re-release:
Fantastic aromas of violets, cinnamon, damp earth, black olive, and nutmeg.  On the palate, there are elements of cured meats, black walnut white pepper. The tannins are silky and the finish is seamless and long.

Original Release:
As this wine unfolds, the nose is packed with seared blackberries, gardenia, olive tapenade, white pepper and spent campfire. The palate evolves from blue berries and violets to smoked meats and rolling tobacco – changing with every sip you take. The finish lingers like the still of a summer night, becoming denser, richer and more intense as it passes.
