Deep Purple in color with a short purple rim.
Strong nose of sweet plums, black currants, wood, cloves, spices, barnyard, pencil lead, black pepper, vegetables and metals.
Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with sweet raspberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, oak, cloves, black olives, tobacco leaf, earth, bitter herbs, spices and black pepper.
Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is an average red wine from Lodi. Simple with a nice, soft mouthfeel. Too bitter for my taste.
Needs an hour to open up properly. I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.
15% alcohol by volume.
