Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) On the nose, floral notes of crushed violet lead the way to dark fruit aromas of black cherries, ripe plum and summertime blackberries. Complex aromas that continue to evolve in the glass. On the palate, the wine is well structured and balanced, offering flavors of blackberry and plum, with a hint of dark chocolate and fine leather. The mouthfeel is full and rich, with velvety soft tannins that continue through the wine’s long-lasting finish.
