tasting notes

Beautiful aromatics of violets and red roses lead into a medium to heavy bodied wine with a mix of dark chocolate, van cherries and cassis flavors on the palate. Silky soft and integrated tannins, this wine finishes with fresh black fig and red cherry flavors. A cellar-worthy wine that is drinking well now, but has even greater potential with age.
