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

Beautiful aromatics of cassis, fruit leather and chocolate milk with flavors of anise, black cherry and cigar box. Bright clean acid and medium bold tannins and a long, lingering finish of fresh tobacco, savory plum sauce and maraschino cherries. This wine will pair well with anything off the grill as well as hearty beef stews and chili.
