Deep ruby red
Warm, ripe on the nose, intense and of great refinement.
Complex, smooth, full bodied, lots of cherry notes and plum
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Structured and savory, this opens with aromas of prune, baked plum and cake spice. The full-bodied palate doles out ripe black cherry, raisin, white pepper and mocha accompanied by round, chewy tannins. It closes on a licorice note.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Elegant and balanced, with supple tannins framing the flavors of juicy black cherry, singed orange peel, wild herb and Christmas spice. Drink now through 2022. 3,000 cases imported.
