Medium Ruby with aromas of dried fruits and sweet herb spice. On the palate cherry, blackberry jam and licorice flavors. Full body, medium acidity and soft tannins, well balanced, long finish ending with pepper spice and warming alcohol. Drinks well now, recommend not to age further. Pair with a nice bowl of pasta.

Dinner with co-workers during one of my monthly visits to our greater Atlanta office.

Decent bottle, needed lots of air to get going, luckily proper stemware was provided.
Mostly ripe, dark fruits, dried cherry, licorice, enjoyable.

Tobacco, cedar and spice notes frame dried black cherries and bitter chocolate. Resolved tannins. Somewhat rustic.

Deep ruby with mocha and plum notes on the nose and palate. Finish reminiscent of chocolate covered cherries. Lovely wine and surprisingly subtle for having 15.5%abv
