Winemaker's Notes:

Blackberry, black cherry and cassis, all thoroughly ripe, introduce a broad array of chewy youthful tannins. A beautiful acidity balances the impressive fruit dynamic and youthful cherry flavors lingers long in the finish. Smooth and accessible now, this rich and handsome wine will evolve beautifully over the years if you can resist the immediate gratification.
