Tasting Notes
Deep Purple meets Victoria Beckham —smoke and spice. Smo-oak on the wi-ine… Draped in thin leather haute couture and perfumed with peppercorn and dried herb, this girl is smooth – yet rocks! Big fruit — fig, black raspberry, dark cherry. Big spice that, when opened awhile, evolves toward eucalyptus with micro-mint. All this fruit and spice with an under layer of loam marks this wine with an Xahhtic.

– Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
