Winemaker's Notes

Black and red cherries, ripe plums and a hint of raspberry provide the fruit tones on the nose, along with hints of black tea, lavender, leather and tobacco, adding complexity to give great aromatic intensity.

"Polished and delicious, just starting to come into its own. Has shed its youthful tannins to reveal a silky, fleshy wine of charm and nuance. Raspberry, cherry, nutmeg, cola, cocoa and smoky oak flavors unfold in waves, leading to a soft, spicy finish."
-Wine Enthusiast
