This 96 point wine earned two Gold Medals at the San Francisco International Wine Competition, which is one of the most important competitions in the country.

Fine, fresh and fragrant on the nose, with aromas of raspberry, red currant, cherry, cherry tobacco, chocolate covered cherry, soft mixed spice, India black tea leaf, dried orange peel and river rock.

Wow, what a palate on this beauty! Flavors of blackberry, raspberry, red currant, cranberry, chocolate covered cherry, subtle spice, black tea leaf, dried orange peel, subtle mineral.
