Look – Intensely dark purple with deep garnet edges and a dark but clear core. When swirled, this slightly viscous wine leaves slender and widely spaced legs that race to the wine below.
Smell – Medium bold in intensity with rich Bing cherry, cassis and dark fruit layered over licorice and balsam notes. Green herbs, pepper and balanced notes of oak linger along with hints of sweet spice and mocha.
Feel – This dry and full-bodied wine is expansive and chewy with firm tannins that grip into the finish. Textured dark minerality, warming spice and bright acidity contribute to a chewy mouth feel.
Taste – Fruit forward in character with blackberry, dark cherry, cassis and currants meld with sweet and peppery spice. Licorice and toasted oak along with the green herbs and mocha layer into the finish.
