Tasting Notes

This expressive, deep ruby wine is brimming with complex aromas and flavors. Brambly blue and black fruit with notes of peppermint and tobacco leaf lead to dried fig, licorice, and toffee. With time, intense caramel and cigar box aromas emerge. Velvety smooth flavors of cassis and red cherry are enhanced by dark, braised meat influences. Full bodied and robust with harmonious acidity, each sip coats the palate and leads to a persistent finish. Enjoy!

Drink or Hold.
