    May 1, 2011 - The nose is dark and herbal with green peppers and blackberries playing supporting roles to the complex herb scents. The flavors are pretty direct, and they deliver on what the nose suggests. The blackberry flavors run out nicely on the finish, and I tasted a little bit of strawberry late as well.

    5/10/2012 (link) ** 1/2 points

    (Smasne Cellars Carmenere Phinney Hill Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills) Brightly aromatic full of freshly snapped bell pepper, cherry, and spice. The palate is soft and silky, gliding along with velvety tannins and cherry flavors. Bell pepper aromas and flavors take over the show at times. 13.9% alcohol. 119 cases produced. Sample provided by winery.
