Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Vibrant red fruit, with aromas and flavors of cherry and raspberry counter-balanced with anise, black pepper spice and cedary notes from oak aging. The wine shows varietal character, with a soft, pleasant, medium-body with appealing tannins and hints of cherry and cola spice on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) A soft entry, with ripe plum and raspberry in the forefront, is supported by background flavors of tobacco and caramel, which add complexity to this imminently drinkable wine.
