Dark ruby red in color with satisfying aromas of boysenberry, dark cherry and mulberry alongwith delicate hints of baking spices, dill, cola, nutmeg and vanilla. On the palate, bold flavors ofcranberry, ripe plum, cherry and super-ripe strawberry are uplifted by gentle notes of cocoapowder and sweet fig for a generous and silky mouthfeel. This tremendously complex andbroad-shouldered wine finishes with grace.
Made in a thick and robust style, this hearty red is powerful and weighty in oak and tannin. Spicy seasonings of cinnamon and clove highlight rich, viscous flavors of dark cherry and berry, with rose aromatics up front and soothing.
