Dedicated to the producer's father, this 100% Alicante Bouschet is superbly ripe and rich without overwhelming. It has the dark black colors of the grape that are followed by full-bodied black fruit flavors and impressive spice and pepper flavors. The wine is still young, so wait to drink until 2018.
