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

Savory and earthy aromas and flavors of dried fruits, sage and anise. Medium to heavy tannins are beautifully integrated with the French oak leaving a finish of sweet cedar, fruit leather and a hint of fern frond.
