Wine Details

Seduces with black fruits, plum, spring flowers, earth, and bramble.   A core of fleshy pure red fruit laced with fine grained tannins resonates with brooding grace.  Profound.

Smooth and sweet dark fruit up front with a spicy and tobacco finish. Nice that I was able to finally locate this wine locally.

The smells are wonderful, this wine will be fantastic in a few years, it needs aging. I will keep my eye open in a few

Not my favorite CH red blend. I think lot 457 is better but still a very good tasting meritage

Aaron

This is an interesting red hen ranch. Cherry on the nose, smooth up front. A little pepper on the finish, but it lingers on for a while, the finish is strong, pleasantly surprising from the experience of the sip.

Ara

Warm and succulent, currant nose with a soft touch of bell pepper right on the pour. Opens up to a classic Oak Knoll Merlot. Fantastic now, but should open up beautifully in the next few years. Tried this at Liquor Boy in Minneapolis as an exclusive release. Will pick up a few to lay down for a while.
