Ruby red in color with purple highlights, the wine's aromas are characterized by a notable varietal character, ones dominated by intense and powerful notes of cherry and wild cherry fruit along with berry and exotic fruit as well. The wine is balanced, ample, and enveloping on the palate, and the ripe, velvety, and polished tannins give a highly pleasurable tactile suppleness to the wine all the way from the initial sensations to the vibrant and savory finish and the long and persistent aftertaste.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of ripe black-skinned berries, scorched earth, exotic spices, menthol and a whiff of oak are just some of the scents you'll find in this vibrant red. The elegant palate delivers mature Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, orange zest, star anise and a hint of espresso alongside polished, fine-grained tannins.

Wine SpectatorThis is taut and linear, with a solid base of tannins supporting plum, black cherry, licorice and underbrush flavors. Fresh and focused, with a long aftertaste walking the line between sweet and salty.
