Beautiful deep ruby color reveals bright black cherry, cola and warm spice aromas mingled with white chocolate, delicate floral layers and a crème brulée vanilla note from the sweet oak. Generous forward fruit and a supple, silky texture enrobe the palate with cola and nutmeg notes filling out deeply layered black fruit flavors. The finish is rich, dense and refined, lifted by ample lingering fruit.
