Winemaker's Notes:

A profusion of ripe and spicy black cherry aromas lure you in and then explode in the mouth with a layer of vanilla that fills the middle with amazing richness and viscosity. Don't make any immediate plans for your mouth after that first taste – the finish will keep your taste buds busy long into the evening. Enjoy this wine in its vibrant youth, or tuck it away – bottle aging will only enhance its graces.
