Winemaker's Notes:

The intensely deep garnet color of this wine forecasts the complex, enticing aromas of raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry notes coupled with hints of vanilla, oak spice, anise, and hay. With a reminisent gamay nose, bright raspberry, cherry, and blackberry flavors commingle with oak spice, leather, cedar, and clove. The wine's solid tannins and soft viscosity follow through the long, intense finish.
