Nose

aromas of fresh berries and cedar.

Palate

Bing cherry and plum flavors blend with subtle notes of dust, graphite, and toasty French oak. The beauty of this wine is revealed upon the first sip as the round tannins provide power laced with finesse. The plush fruit brings enjoyment upon release, but a little bottle age will reveal the hidden flavors lying beneath the surface.
