(blended with 3% malbec; from Coombsville fruit): Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, smoke and flint, with lovely violet lift. Lush and mouthfilling without being at all over the top, with dark berry and chocolate flavors dominating. Finishes with broad, serious tannins. This is 14.8% alcohol with a moderate 3.65 pH. Winemaker Herold notes that this fruit always ripens but that cool evening breezes in Coombsville help to preserve acidity levels. This has turned out very well.

Initial impression of stewed fruit, but grew a little with air. Some elements of sage or leather. Big flavor and long finish, but ultimately just pretty good for me.
