    Vibrant aromas of ripe blackberry, spice and cassis mingle with notes of vanilla and toasted oak on the nose. Full-bodied and velvety on the palate, the flavors are bright and juicy, with hints of ripe blackberry, plums and clove.The wine's finish combines fruit, oak and tannin in perfect balance.
