Fresh and taut, with a sharp edge of crisp tannins to the dark berry and floral flavors, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 13,700 cases made.-HS

Bright red. Dried cherry, licorice and woodsmoke on the pungent nose, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Chewy, slightly bitter redcurrant and cherry flavors unwind slowly, picking up a licorice quality and a hint of bitter chocolate. Shows a slightly tart character on the finish, with the cherry and licorice notes echoing. Let this one stretch out in the glass.
