Aromas of sweet vanilla, before moving into jammy dark cherry and boysenberry, along with a touch of cedar.
The palate entry is very full and smooth with juicy and sweet fruit notes of dark cherry and huckleberry flooding in from the midpalate through the finish. The excellent balance of tannin, acid and fruit lends a seamless quality to the mouthfeel. Spice notes of black pepper, star anise and a hint of clove complement the fruit and tannin on the lingering finish.

Beautifully opaque dark plum color in the glass, this blend shows great concentrations from the first glance.
This big red wine will do well with just about any hearty protein-based meal, but its balance gives it versatility beyond the obvious “big steak.”
