Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A beautiful menagerie of black cherry, cocoa, rose petal, raspberry, mint, cedar and wet granite is the introduction to this elegant beauty. The palate offers an intoxicating mix of savory flavors: black truffle, muddled blueberry, forest floor and anise. The dense and chalky midpalate quickly evolves into a silky and seamless finish the lasts for over a minute after the wine is gone.
