Winemaker's Notes

This wine is big, bad and beautiful with firm aromas and flavors of cassis, dark cherry and other jammy red fruits with just a touch of green olive or fresh earth. The aromas are ripe without being over ripe. The oak complements the fruit and lends balance to the mid-palate. The tannin is apparent, suggesting that this wine will age gracefully, yet it is in balance with the weight of the wine. The mid-palate richness carries through to the long, mouth-watering finish.
