Our reserve program is defined by provenance, power and quality. The aromas include blackberry, lavender, oak and leather. There are intense flavors of ripe cherries, plums, caramel and savory spices. Balanced acidity, integrated oak and concentrated fruit culminate to a lengthy finish.

Big, potent and deeply concentrated, this holds nothing back with its rich, ripe black-cherry-compote flavor. Lavender overtones lead into more expressive layers of vanilla, black tea and Kahlúa. It is intense and lingering. Editors’ Choice. —P.G.
