The beautiful aromatics of cassis, rich black fruit, and baking spices are a sensory treat, but it is the incredible rich and velvety mouth feel that will captivate you! A true expression of the Walla Walla Valley, this wine is delicious with artfully balanced acidity showing ripe black and red fruit flavors with notes of cocoa and touch of sweet herb.
