Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Smoky cigar and toffee caramel hit the high notes in this soft, thick and rich reserve-level wine, sure to please fans of a full-bodied, generously layered style. Blackberry and blueberry jam provide the fruit to match the savory elements..Virginie Boone, February/2016

Lush, pure, elegant aromas and flavors of blackberry, mocha and toasty oak vanilla. A full-bodied mid-palate with generous tannins, excellent length, vitality and texture set apart this expansive wine of extraordinary elegance.

Back Forty pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued red meats such as lamb, beef, pork or veal. Medium and strong-flavored semi-soft, semi-hard, aged or creamy cheeses work well, or pair Back Forty with a dark chocolate dessert for a special treat.
