This wine is explosive on the nose with wild berries, chocolate, cookie dough, and dark cherries.


Once on the palate the wine is dense, fleshy and powerful with a great concentration. The mid palate is showing powerful tannins and finishing with notes of sage and cloves. There is a lasting finish of crushed rocks and blueberries. The wine is showing very well right now has a great aging potential
