Wine Details

Wine Description

Kirsch liqueur dominates the nose, but one can also find licorice, high quality cigar tobacco, and plenty of raspberry notes. Deep ruby to the rim, this full-bodied wine has stunning concentration, moderate tannin, good definition, and a blockbuster finish.

Rich but suave and energetic, with excellent finishing clarity and length.
