Aromas of black cherry, cedar, vanilla, and baked plum exude from the glass. As the wine blossoms with air, notes of cassis and tobacco add to this wine's complex aromatic profile. Fig and blackberry open in the mouth with a smooth and supple entry. Table ready with fine knit tannins and notes of nutmeg and cherry on the back palate. The finish lingers with mocha and cassis and invites you to another sip.
