This wine is immediately impressive with a wonderfully deep, saturated color reminiscent of black cherry juice. The aromas are equally enticing with blackberry, sweet dark plum, cedar and baking spices. On the palate the wine is exquisitely seductive with powerful dark berry flavors, seamless integrated French oak and plush tannins.
