Winemaker's Notes

The color is quite dark with a beautiful magenta-black robe. The aromas show traditional berries and spice with a bit of meat and smoke. There is a lot of juice and weight in the mouth with softer than usual acidity and developed tannins. The pH's were quite low as well so the finish is still very refreshing.

This wine will probably hold nicely for 5-8 years, but why wait?
