Tasting Note

This wine’s nose bursts with notes of dark cherry, cedar wood, blackberries and dark chocolate. The palate displays a firm yet elegant and refined tanning structure. It shows more dark fruit with a firm structure, good acidity with a long dry finish. This wine is made for some age and keeps well for 10+ years or can be enjoyed now.
