Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Deep Garnet in color, with fruit aromas of Blackberry, Blueberry, Raspberry and Cassis that are joined by notes of Vanilla, Hazelnut, Milk Chocolate and Caramel - from months of oak aging. The wine is soft and round in the mouth, the abundance of fruit present in the nose is replicated and lingers in the clean finish.
