(2012 Vintage) Deceptively sweet aromas of strawberries, raspberries and rose petals. The flavors are dark, rich, lusciously mouthwatering, with cherries, boysenberries, tart plum skins, hints of leather, sweet pipe tobacco, and coffee beans. The tannins are firm, but not a bit edgy and the finish lingers with just a touch of anise.
Very solid blend. full-bodied, lots of black cherry. not the spiciest of wines, but definitely a wonderful glass of red to have with a good meal.
Definitely one of my favorite wines. Amazing flavor.
