    Color: Dark ruby

    Nose: Black and blue fruit, finishing with toast and dust

    Palate: This is actually Rutherford fruit, so it's curious as to why the winery didn't label it as such. Pretty good stuff, that fruit stays on the palate in a dominating manner. My bottle had been open a little too long, however, so it had some oxidative flavors. Still, you can tell that this has decent structure and those Rutherford tannins.

    Pretty nice. I also wondered why it wasn't labeled as Rutherford?
