    Sweet, spicy on the nose with green herbal, fennel seed notes and sweet toasted oak aromas. A bit light and fresh on entry with wild berry fruit and a touch of forest floor that adds a nice attractive contrast to the fruit. Not a big wine, but not smaller either, just medium bodied, fresh, if a bit simple, and very well balanced.  Soft and easy drinking with candied blackberry notes and a bit of oak coming together briefly. Easy going and pleasant.

    tasting notes

    Black plum and blackberry blossom aromatics lead to rich flavors of cherry tart and berry preserves. Silky smooth tannins are accented by a toasty finish of vanilla bean, toasted almonds and a hint of white pepper.
