This exceptional wine is a dark prune color. The bouquet is complex and expressive with a hint of cherries in alcohol with spices. The flavor is full bodied and complex with a touch of acidity. Mid tastes are heady and smooth with a buttery ease. This is a well rounded wine that is balanced between tannic structure and sweetness. The tannins are bold yet supple, and the finish is long and aromatic, true to the bouquet.
