Winemaker's Notes

This is a powerful wine chock full of a myriad of flavors that keep developing. From herbaceous and spicy to currant and blueberry, these are the initial aromas which invite closer inspection. Black tea, bittersweet chocolate, bell pepper, black olive and herbs complete the bouquet. The wine has an enticing mouthfeel features supple, round tannins.
