Owner/winemaker Tom Olander showcases aromas of black cherry, dark toast and black olive with pleasing herbal note. The rich drink is filled with black raspberry and plum flavors, backed by moderate tannins and capped by a remarkable finish that includes a sprinkle of cocoa powder, a pinch of crushed herbs and a dash of black pepper. This earned a gold medal at the 2014 Walla Walla Valley Wine Competition.
