Nose

Our consistent emphasis on truly ripe fruit is evident in this wine as its profuse blackberry and currant aromas leap from the glass.

Palate

Beautifully weighted and deep, this wine portrays everything that is body and length, coating the palate and lingering on and on with flavors of ripe berries and roasted coffee beans, cassis, currant and cedar. An extremely broad structure of Bob’s “friendly” tannins carries the rich, vibrant flavors across the full spectrum of the palate.
