Dark and inky in color. Ripe notes of black berries, raspberry preserves and mission fig with an intriguing subtle floral lift coming from the 1% of Viognier. The mouthfeel is rich and lush with flavors of dark fruit and hints of white cake batter and cocoa. With outstanding concentration and density on the mid palate, the finish is balanced with savory acidity and integrated tannins which round out the wine, seamlessly.
