Tasting Notes:

This is a well-balanced, luscious wine rich in dark fruit aromas and flavors of blackberry, black currant and cherry.  These fruit flavors carry to the finish adding nuances of cocoa.  This wine has a firm structure with an abundance of tannins that stay soft through the long and sustained finish.
