Polished, with a swarm of velvety tannins around a lively core of red plum, rhubarb and spice flavors, lingering with presence and persistence.

tasting notes

Sweet and earthy with aromatics of violets, cedar and forest floor, this rich and full-bodied wine carries through with supportive tannins. Moderate alcohol suspends the sweet, fruit characters of the wine, rounded out by a lingering finish of black licorice, leather with dried fruit.
