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