Wine Bouquet
The wine has complex and enticing bouquet of dark berry fruit along with juicy black plum, spice, cedar and hints of chocolate and roasted coffee.

    Bob Johnson & Glenn Frederiksen, Winelines Online, December 2014


    Nearly opaque deep purple in color, this wine showcases warm brown spices, vanilla and black pepper, framing a solid core of black and blue berry fruit. Surprisingly elegant on the palate, showing a velvety texture. Refined, yet powerful.
