Winemakers Notes - The wine's deep purple color, flecked with violet highlights, hints of the depth and complexity of this big yet approachable wine. Dark aromas redolent of black cherry, berry, plum and tobacco open the profile and continue onto the palate. Subtle undertones of cedar and graphite add layers to the toasty backbone of vanilla and baking spices. Structured tannins accompany the peppery-black fruit into a long, satisfying finish.
