Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Gorgeous ripe fruit aromas distinctive of ripe black cherries are framed by a bouquet of spicy, toasty oak and black licorice. A flavorful wine with excellent depth and balance, with notes of currant, enticing blackberry and spice, and a smooth chocolate-toffee aftertaste. This is a lush and supple, medium-bodied red wine with soft tannins and black fruit flavors lingering on a long aftertaste.

Superb. Perfect topper to our picnic of apples, brie, and SF sourdough on a beautiful, warm and sunny fall day at the Golden Gate Bridge. Wish we'd have bought a case!
