On the nose; sweet perfumed cassis, black raspberries, black plum, blue fruit mix, blackberries, black raspberries cola, fruit liqueur notes, fruit candy, dark chocolate and violets. On the palate; the body is medium full. The tannins are firm but rounded and show some tarry quality. The fruits are ripe; blackberries, blue fruit mix, dark cherries, black raspberries, cherries, fruit liqueur quality, black licorice, dark chocolate, mocha, touch of caramel, dark rich soils, loamy clay and dry top soil, fresh red flowers and violets. The acidity is fresh and excellent. The finish is fresh & well balanced. Easy to drink this one young. Now to 2024. Photos of; the cellar hands aerating and pumping the wine over the cap from concrete tanks. Alcohol evaporators ( @Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bevan & SQN could use a bunch of these). Rows of vines that show the rows of soil dug out for old fashion flood irrigation.
