Winemaker's Notes:

The color displays a deep crimson red. On the nose intense aromas of rich dark berry and plums, layered with underlying notes of fragrant spice and chocolate, while on the palate, rich and round, with a full palate of bright berry fruit and plums flavors along with well-integrated oak, fine acidity, balanced tannins and a long seamless finish.

This wine is enjoyable now but will benefit from four to six years cellaring.

My Notes:
