Palate

PRINTABLE VERSION Featuring the intensity and ripeness that have come to be the hallmark of our wines and a bright acidity that sparkles on the palate, this wine is a stunner. Complex flavors of cedar, black cherry, boysenberry, crème de cassis and pencil shavings make for a multi-layered experience on the palate, along with a rich, dense texture and weighty finish.
