TASTING NOTES |
Smooth, dark aromas of blackberry and bramble with some cedar and wet clay notes. Beautiful fruit notes of plum and black cherry, with a cola-like nuance and a touch of spice grace the luscious, silky palate. This wine possesses well-integrated tannins that are soft, but still noticeably grippy.
