(From 2012 Vintage) Presenting a beautiful garnet-black color in the glass, this wine offers an enchanting bouquet of dark plum and fresh berries that are intermixed with notes of vanilla cream, cola and spearmint. The entry is rich and round, followed by vibrant nuances of red cherry, strawberry and raspberry that linger into a smokey finish, supported by complex acidity and oak-integrated tannins.
