Tasting Notes

This Rhône style red blend has a powerful personality. Fragrant aromas of ganache, crushed raspberries and pencil shavings are intense but not overpowering. Flavors are loaded with deep black fruit, blackberry preserves, cassis, savory meat characters, and minerality. It is full-bodied with blockbuster tannins and will benefit from cellaring.
