Tasting Notes

Alluring aromatics of subtle plum and dark berries mingle with smoky oak and traces of leather and earth. A smooth entry quickly exposes the more robust nature of the wine. Amid the integrating structure find juicy, plush flavors of blackberry, cherry, and plum dancing with hints of mocha, white floral and toasted oak. Traces of tobacco blend with dark chocolate on the finish as the wine expands and lingers. Lovely in its youth, this rich, seductive wine will continue to evolve with bottle aging.
