Tasting Notes

Elegant aromas of crushed cherries, pomegranate and vanilla open to a soft, silky mouthfeel with flavors of rich red plum and baked blackberry. Subtle hints of nutmeg and allspice draw from well-integrated oak aging, balanced by soft fruit tannins. Enjoy now or cellar the 750mL through 2020 and 1.5L bottles by 2030. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.
