A taste of black plum, tar and tobacco is most prominent in this wine. It's dense on the palate, medium in length and yet proffers a lift of acidity toward the finish, a sprinkling of varietal white pepper lingering provocatively. From near Spring Mountain, the grapes reflect a relative coolness, wrapped in concentration.
