With concentrated aromas of cassis, cherry, cedar, red rose petal and tobacco, this wine's complexity continues through the flavors, which include red currant, cherry, blackberry and blueberry with a hint of vanilla from oak aging. Round tannins balance and support this medium-bodied wine's ripe fruit. This wine shows beautifully in its youth and will continue to age gracefully for a decade or more.
"Vibrant garnet hue. Fresh aromas of strawberry, black cherry, new leather and mint. Balanced, four-square flavors of cherry, oak, cedar and a note of chalkiness. Youthful, slow-developing finish. Will benefit from more time in the bottle."
