    tasting notes

    Mid purple-red. The fragrant aromas of cassis and couverture chocolate are highlighted with nuances of ripe, red apple skin, earth and spice. Maturation in French oak contributes notes of cashew and vanilla. Juicy blackberry and cherry fruit flavors are contained by the tightly woven tannins and fresh, natural acidity.
