Color:Dark ruby red.
Nose: Lovely ripe fruit aroma full of plums, berries, notes of cedar and a hint of orange zest.
Palate: The inviting prelude leads to fully-developed flavors that linger on the palate in a long, silky finish. Scents of spice and vanilla are well-balanced against the assertive fruit characters.
