A gracious style, smooth and layered, full-bodied without being heavy, with a rich, elegant mix of dark berry, mocha, mineral and anise. The long, lingering finish turns delicate and spicy, with a wonderful lift.
International Wine CellarDeep ruby-red. Deep aromas of black raspberry and mocha, with a suggestion of maple syrup. Densely packed and sweet, with enticing flavors of raspberry, black cherry and minerals. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins.
