tasting notes

Very dark purple in color, this wine has aromas of currants, black plum and fresh tobacco. Medium bodied with silky tannins and flavors of milk chocolate and blackberry with mocha and pomegranate on the finish. The wine is approachable and very drinkable now, but will mature beautifully for years to come.
