VEGAN FRIENDLY!

Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

90 pts James Suckling
Aromas of blackberries and hints of dark-chocolate follow through to a medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.

89 pts Wine Spectator
Minerally, with richness to the dried berry, cherry and plum pudding flavors that are well-cut. Floral and black licorice notes fill the finish. Drink now through 2021. 3,000 cases made.
