Winemaker's Notes:

Rich aromas of black cherry, cranberry, and strawberry; with subtle notes of citrus blossom, tea, and earth. The mouth is silky and round; with flavors of plum, rhubarb, and sweet vanilla. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.
My Notes:
