Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe raspberries lift from the glass and mingle with tempting aromas of strawberry-rhubarb tart and cola. Delicate notes of anise, cardamom and gingerbread spice lace the fruit to unfold a rich palate of black cherries supported by medium-fine-grained tannins. The finish lingers with attractive, subtle, toasty undertones, fine acid, and excellent balance.

Pairs beautifully with barbequed leg of lamb or braised pork tenderloin.
