Winemaker's Notes:

Tasted after one year in bottle. The attractive and complex aromas of raspberry and cocoa powder lead to a very balanced, textured and layered wine on the palate. The fruit flavors are buttressed by sweet vanilla and graham cracker notes. The wine has great nerve, persistent length and good potential for short to medium term cellaring.
My Notes:
