Our 2016 ONYX beautifully shows the power and grace of Red Mountain with the concentrated fruit typical of warmer growing seasons. The 2016 ONYX lifts out of the glass with fragrances of fresh raspberries and strawberries and notes of rose petal, violet and pencil shavings. On the palate, ONYX shows a concentration of plum and dark cherry that leads to the core black fruit flavors of blackberry and cassis. The supurbly balanced finish allows these darker fruits to extend the palate while presenting hints of dark chocolate as the flavors seem to continue endlessly.
