Aromas of raspberry and black cherry are met with hints of lavender and vanilla. Rich, velvety flavors of blackcurrant and cocoa lead into a deliciously long finish of redcurrant and tobacco. It is full-bodied and smooth with well-balanced tannins.
“Sophisticated oak spices and ripe, bold flavors make a great combo in this full-bodied wine laced with lip-smacking, fine-grained tannins. It has power with polish, revealing layers of black cherry, black currant, cocoa, ginger, and graphite.” – 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast
