The 2005 vintage has a deep clear red color. It boasts of ripe Santa Rosa plum and blueberry fruit with a hint of coffee in the aroma. This is a big, rich wine, with toasted oak, coffee bean and blackberry preserve flavors and a long finish.

"Dark and brooding, with blackberry and blueberry aromas and dense plum, tar and cracked pepper flavors. Drink now. 490 cases made. –TF" (2008)
