Wine Description

The aromas are somewhat exotic, melding earthy aromas with dark cherry and blackberry notes and highlighted by hints of violet and lavender. The flavors match the aromas with sandalwood and vanilla just beginning to give ground to the greater fruit below. It finishes long and silky, revealing its cherry core in the delicious finish. It will evolve to be fuller and fruitier and will age gracefully for five years.
