Winemaker's Notes

Deep reddish purple. Red fruits, blackcurrant, raspberry and black pepper. Fresh and round tasting with ripe fruits and a peppery finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Alluring, with perfumy black tea, sandalwood and warm fig sauce aromas, followed by black cherry, anise and white pepper notes. There's a nice sanguine edge on the sleek, medium-weight finish. Drink now through 2017."
