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

Aromatics with cherries and roasted red peppers mixed with cedar. Lighter tannins make the wine refreshing and easy to drink with flavors of strawberry and mixed fruit chutney. Finishes with savory notes with a hint of smoky oak.
