With a lovely crimson hue, the wine immediately makes itself known in the glass with lofty scents of fresh picked berries and dark fruits interlaced with hints of potpourri, sassafras, licorice, forest floor and roasted chestnuts.
On the palate, the fresh and expressive flavors of ripe blackberry, boysenberry, dark cherry and raspberry are underscored with nuances of mineral, black truffle, cardamon, clove and a touch of fine-grained oak.
Big, round and opulent in texture. The complex flavor profile is balanced with a rich, creamy texture, supple tannins, and a nice burst of bracing acidity leading to a long, dry finish.
