Expressive with spicy black cherry, saddle leather, and a subtle, beguiling hint of roses.
The wine shows lovely texture, with supportive, mouth-filling tannins that mingle well with flavors of mission fig, blackberries, smoky dark chocolate, and espresso. The wine is dense and supple, with a lingering, sweetly smoky finish.
All fruit is organically grown.
