A wine built for the cellar, it opens with enticing aromas of dark cherry, cedar and violets. Tannins are rich and inviting, lending structure to the plum and toffee flavors with a woodsy edge of fir bough and black currant.
“…an open nose of warm black and red cherries and berries with touches of cinnamon stick, dried leaves, red licorice and floral perfume. Light to medium-bodied, silky textured and very concentrated, it fills the mouth with ripe black and red fruits and spice, with a firm frame of grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing with wonderful layers and a touch of salty licorice.”
