    “Ripe and lush with juicy plum and berries, bright and fresh with a long, rich style; balanced and tangy.” - Anthony Dias Blue


    tasting notes

    Smoky, toasty and coffee aromas, giving way to sweet vanilla with bright cherry aromas. The palate is earthy, with smooth tannins and cherry fruit flavors dominating.
