Dark rich ruby in color, this wine offers rich, complex aromas of ripe dark cherry, sweet chocolate, cinnamon, pie spice, and leather, with top notes of rose and forest floor. In the mouth this wine makes a full soft round entry, after which the acid builds nicely to make it very juicy and inviting. Loads of fine grain tannin completes the mouthfeel, with berry patch, fruit stand flavors dominating. Nice notes of clove and toasted oak round out the tremendous long finish that will keep you coming back for more. This is a very well balanced wine that will age well and pair beautifully with a wide array of foods.
International Wine CellarBright ruby-red with aromas of blackberry, cassis and boysenberry. Juicy, intensely flavored and quite fresh.
Wine AdvocateA beautiful, classic wine with loads of berry fruit, an earthy character, and a spicy, pure, rich finish.
