A brilliant ruby color introduces an array of aromas including vanilla, warm plum and blackberries. A symphony of cassis, huckleberries, brown spices, minerals and black cherries on the tongue. Smooth, inky, and rich. Great structure. Supple mouth feel with a good balance of ripe sweet fruit and acidity. Easy drinking with soft, even, smooth tannins. Aged in small oak barrels for 12 months, the total production of this wine is under 600 cases per year.
