Winemaker's Notes

An intense ruby red color with garnet reflections is present in the wine. The bouquet is distinguished with fresh ripe fruit. The palate is concentrated and focused with flavors of cherry, chocolate and ripe fruit. The wine concludes with a persistently bold and austere finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Offers blackberry and toasty oak on the nose, with dark chocolate. Full-bodied, soft and round, with loads of fruit. This loses a little focus on the center palate, but the finish is beautiful and focused. Drink now."
