Winemaker's Notes

Concentrated layers of berry and cassis notes with orange peel, spice, and rich oak characters; deep and complex flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"A suave red, with luscious dark fruit flavors that are accented by plenty of licorice and spice notes. The powerful finish features bittersweet chocolate and mocha, with hints of savory herb."
