Tasting Notes

Deep ruby in color, with an intensely fragrant bouquet of cherry, red and dark berry aromas, elegant vanilla, and a whiff of wood spice. These follow through on the palate where soft, supple tannins contribute to the dense structure. A wine of outstanding balance, with a lingering, memorable aftertaste. An excellent accompaniment to seared tuna.
