The big, very dark and inviting nose of ripe cherry, licorice, cocoa and toast sets things up. The dense palate is packed with cherry, tar, even bacon notes, and it has a plush, velvety feel that belies the wine’s structure. The impressive finish is dark and toasty, with well-dispersed tannins. Cellar two to four years.
Nicely proportioned, with a trim band of cedar, currant, anise and black cherry, turning chunky and tannic.
The grapes for this bottling were dry-farmed on the upper slopes of Diamond Mountain Ranch, between elevations of 1,500 and 1,700 feet. The deep, well-drained volcanic soils on the steep northern face of the Mayacamas Range produce grapes with excellent concentration and intensity. The winery's note: "Dense, inky, ruby in color. Aromas of ripe cherries, chocolate mint and vanilla. Generous tart cherry fruit, sweet vanilla and buttery oak flavors, with firm chewy tannins. The wine has classic hillside intensity."
