Dark ruby-crimson tones dominate the color of this wine with highlights of fuchsia, denoting a youthful brightness. Concentrated notes of cranberry, red cherry and blackberry pervade the wine’s aromatics with nuances of mocha, caramel and expresso imbued into the wine from 20 months of aging in French oak. The palate is both plush and vibrant and restates the elegant combination of fruit and spice aromas. Chewy tannins form the foundation of this rich mid-palate and extend well into the lush and sophisticated finish.
