Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is full-bodied and round with well integrated tannins for a smooth finish. The initial aroma contains dark berry fruit with a hint of earthiness. In the mouth the wine is intensely flavored with components of cherry, cedar, tobacco, toast, herbs, and blackberry.
My Notes:
