Oozing with bright fruit aromas of strawberry, raspberry and red plum, with hints of licorice, violet and spice. This Bordeaux varietal blend offers more fruit on the palate, black cherry and more raspberry, traces of clove, cedar and olive, and dusted with cocoa powder. Deftly balanced, with ample acidity and integrated tannins, and with a lingering finish that recalls cedar, vanilla, caramel and just a touch of cherry cola.
