My Rating 87 Points.
Deep inky in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, plums, wood, licorice, spices, chocolates, peppermint, light coffee, mocha, tobacco, vanilla and light vegetables.
Full bodied and smooth with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, spices, bitter vegetables, vanilla and tar.
Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a nice red wine from the house of Orin Swift. Balanced with light complexity and a smooth mouthfeel. A little bitter on the palate which will hopefully go away in a year or two.
Had it before, and this time it wasn’t as good as I remembered it.
15% alcohol by volume.
