tasting notes

Earthy aromas of dust and forest floor with exploding flavors of dark fruit, cassis and sweet oak. Jammy and full-bodied with a long, spicy finish of cigar box and pepper aromas and lingering fruit flavors. This wine is ready to drink now but will age for a decade or more and continue to improve with time.
