From a cold, high-altitude site on the Mendocino Ridge. Deep purple/black in color. Richly textured. Mouth-filling flavors touch on wild blackberries and blueberry liqueur, with definite nuances of sweet cinnamon-like spiciness, smoke, and red flowers Weighty yet balanced and almost velvety in the mouth. The wine was slightly reticent when first opened, so I'd be surprised if this wine doesn't continue to evolve and open up for several more years. - HK 2015-12-01
