Wine Details





Wine Description

(2002 Vintage) Medium-dark ruby color. Pronounced ripe cherry and green peppercorn herbal aromas. Distinctive pine-vanilla oak aromas add a spicy accent. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins, moderate acidity and ripe cherry-mineral flavors, this is already a very balanced wine. The finish is marked by distinctive hints of red pepper mixed with cocoa and vanilla-oak.
