A robust & powerful red blend with a concentrated beam of bold cassis and dark black cherry; Interwoven with anise, earthy warmth, coffee and tobacco. The acidity on the mid-palate, reveals underpinnings of herbs and mineral spice that endure on dark berry notes. An infusion of baker’s chocolate and gripping tannins line the long finish.
This wine is a collaboration with SIU School of Medicine to celebrate their 50th anniversary, and created by our winemaker with Dean & Provost Dr. Jerry Kruse of SIU medicine.
