Bright plum, red fruit, cherry and berry predominate with hints of cranberry, sassafras, cocoa and nice acidity.  A vibrant and forward wine with the balance to develop more complexity with age.

Tasting Notes

Rich, juicy, concentrated aromas of blackberry, cassis, black licorice, oak, and vanilla. Sweet, opulant flavors, an elegant palate of black cherry, chocolate, currant, and black pepper. Soft, dusty, round tannins.
