14.1% alc., 400 cases, $60. A collaboration between William Hunter and David Umino. · Nicely composed and heady aromatics featuring black cherry, savory herbs and a hint of oak. A saucy and fat core of cherries and berries with bright acidity, a smooth texture, ending with a mildly disagreeable oaky and astringent aftertaste. Reviewed January 1, 2009
