Tons of gooey red fruit flavor, ranging from strawberry jam to red raspberry, currant and kirsch. The showy fruit tones are interwoven with dark spice flavors of coffee liqueur and licorice, while the mid-palate possesses a lingering silkiness that soothes the senses. In the finish, the wine is all finesse, with fully ripe tannins that contribute a subtle nuttiness and structure.
