Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant, garnet color. Aromas of black cherry, damson plum, cassis, cedar / spice, and black truffle. The wine is rich, full bodied, and complex, with good firm Cabernet structure and velvety tannins. There is excellent integration of the fruit and oak, offering natural ripeness, with a flavorful and persistent finish. Alcohol 14.4 %
