Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) This supple red shows dark smoke, licorice and espresso flavors, with dried cherry and tobacco notes. This offers lively acidity, enough tannin for grip and a smoky finish.

    smooth purple hue, oddly not very aromatic. good fruit taste, plum, cherry followed by earthy tones and a slight spicy tannic finish with some hints of oak

    Medium body. Cherry and black pepper. Easy drinking but unspectacular.
