Wine Description

"Not giving away much right now, but it's concentrated and deep. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. A beauty. Give this time."-Wine SpectatorSeductive, silky, smoky red that is deep ruby in color with a nose that explodes with violets, fruits and berries as well as cigar box, cedar and exotic spices. Unfiltered to retain subtle nuances.
