Brad's reserve spent an extra year in new french oak, and now has had three years in the bottle, to integrate the flavors.
Dark ruby in color, with a hint of umber on the lip, showing off it's extended aging process.
Ripe black cherries fill the nose.
On the palate, the dark plum and bright cherries are balanced with a bit of earth to round out the beautiful finish.
