Wine Details

Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) with deep, ripe aromas of crushed blackberries, dark cherries, bittersweet chocolate and violets. The highly saturated black-fruit flavors echo the aromas as they expand across the palate and persiston the finish. Nuances of toffee and toasted oak spices, from aging in 100 percent new French oak barrels, add even more complexity.
