Blueberry and pomegranate with semi-pungent notes of cigar box and cedar wood on the nose. Rich and mouth filling flavors of dark fruits up front, followed by strawberry and rhubarb pie. This is a big wine that should continue to develop into unknown territories.
Chocolate covered cherries is the predominant aroma of this wine. Hints of herbs and a tea leaf as well. Rich and ripe flavors of bittersweet chocolate and blackberries along with black fruits and sexy toasted oak linger forever. A thread of crisp acidity coupled with sturdy tannins helps maintain the finish and provides for a very complex and luxurious sensation.
