Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Hints of vanilla and cocoa dust add complexity to the rich aroma. Flavors: Smooth entry, with lively ripe, fresh berries followed by vanilla and cocoa flavors that fill the palate. Smooth and textural, with generous body and supple tannins. Very well balanced. The finish evokes dark cherry and sage, with hints of allspice and vanilla that linger seamlessly.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) Ripe black cherry and plum aromas mingle with toasty oak and a hint of leather. Flavor: In the mouth, ripe black cherry, plum and currant flavors are beautifully in balance with sweet oak carrying through to a long finish. Tannins are supple and round.
