Taste: The palate begins with roasted red berries, earthy accents and some delicate red floral nuances. As the wine evolves, the sweeter red cherry flavors dominate. Silky, elegant textural richness that lingers, leading to gently fading finish. Its lovely textures, supple tannins, juicy acidity, and a lovely length of concentrated fruit are a signature of this site. The concentration into the finish gently fades and remains juicy with spice and dark cherry flavors
