    "Smooth, silky and herbal with tangy fruit and spice; good balance and lively acidity; long and fresh." -Anthony Dias Blue

    Supple, deftly balancing its pure currant flavors against a frame of cherry and spice, with a wee touch of rosemary. The finish hovers enticingly. -hs

    tasting notes

    Black cherry red. Primary aromas of black currant and couverture chocolate are subtly enhanced with nuances of violets, clove and bay leaf. The cassis mid-palate is shaped and defined with fresh, natural acidity and fine cedar oak. A medium bodied wine with a lingering finish, showing harmonious integration of its fruit, structural and subtle oak elements.
