Tasting Notes

This Merlot-based blend shines with toasty tobacco, plum and dried herb aromas. Warming cinnamon spice and Valencia orange zest notes emerge. A lush, chocolatey mouthfeel supports the flavors of ripe cherry and vanilla bean. The lingering, earthy finish completes this luxuriously balanced wine.  Drink now through 2029.
