This wine starts with a sweet aroma followed by dill and cold ashes (a consistent aromatic in the blocks Torii Mor gets from Temperance Hill Vineyard), followed by dark cherry and oak spice notes. The flavors show rich earthiness with dark cherries, dark chocolate, and a long cigar box-oak spice finish. The mouth-feel is thick, rich and medium sweet with a spicy finish. The texture shows rich round tannins which show a little dryness in the long finish.
