On the nose it displays ripe fruit aromas of raspberry, cherry, and strawberry with notes of dark earth and smoky oak. On the palate there are concentrated flavors of dried cherry, hard candy, and vanilla. It has a nice, long, fruit driven finish.

The grapes were picked at 25.0 Brix, destemmed into small open-top fermenters, and punched-down twice daily by hand. Following fermentation the wine was inoculated for malo-lactic fermentation and barreled down to traditional burgudian barrels. The barrels used were 30% new oak from the Allier forest in France, and 70% previously used barrels. The wine was aged in barrel for 8 months. It was bottled without fining or filtration. Only 262 cases were produced.
