A beautiful ruby color: on the nose, the glass is pretty and perfumed. Red fruits mingle with a medley of darker fruits. Dried cranberry, ripe black cherry, blackberries, and dried red plums are framed by aromatic red florals. Fresh ground pink peppercorn and subtle wet earth tones are more persistent on the palate than the nose. The wine finishes with a touch of barrel and spice. This wine has structure, and it can age or be enjoyed youthfully.
