Tasting Notes

“Powerful aromas of blackberry compote, smoky herbs, potpourri and olive, with a lively mineral undertone; smells like syrah. Then lush and creamy in texture, offering broad dark berry, cherry-cola, violet pastille and smoky mineral flavors. Closes with a fine dusting of tannins, excellent clarity and alluring sweetness.” ~ Stephen Tanzer
