Tasting Notes

This beautiful, deep wine exudes aromas of black fruits, leather, graphite, baking spices, dried herbs, and luscious caramel, with hints of maple-smoked bacon. The rich mouthfeel and balanced acidity deliver flavors of dark cherry, cocoa powder, violets, and lavender with a long, blackberry jam-infused finish.
