|This wine definitely has varietal characteristics that would
make Merlot proud!
It sports a dark ruby color taunting richness from the first pour. The nose is treated to developed dark fruit including savory cinnamon and cedar. My favorite though is how the dark chocolate finesses its way around everything. Now that your nose is ethereally pleased, the wine's wonderful aromas don't disappoint when tasted either.
The rich flavors of black cherry and spice are meaty and balanced with dusty tannins that are not harsh or drying. This medium to full bodied wine is warm and inviting. I hope you enjoy it.
