Tasting notes: Deep dark red in color with notes of fresh red berries and plum jam on the nose followed by mellowed spice and tobacco from the time spent in barrel. The wine exhibits complexity and great structure while rewarding with soft silky tannins and balanced acidity, settling into a long and persistent finish.
