(From 2012 Vintage) This wine has an aroma of bright cherry, spice, and hints of raspberry. On the palette it’s very smooth with notes of cherry and pomegranate. The color is iridescent garnet with great depth, thanks to ideal ripening conditions. The nose opens to aromas of bright raspberry, currant and nutmeg. The palate is met with flavors of black cherry, cola and baking spices, all woven together with silky, elegant tannins. The mouthfeel is rich, creamy and has a gentle structure with a lingering finish.
