Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is perfumed and poignant; expressive in its floral qualities of violets and crushed rose petals, expansive in its character of black cherry, blue fruits, white peach, cocoa powder and marzipan. The palate is layered and lavish with a juicy succulence and notes of vanilla and nougat, chocolate and rosehips surrounding a vibrant cherry core. Refined and deeply appealing this wine shows great character now but if one is patient, more shall be revealed.
