Valentine’s Day with Ashley. Incredibly smooth. Dry with bitter cacao, winter berry, and licorice notes. Really nice for a special occasion.

Beautiful deep ruby coloration. On the nose, cherry, plum, anise, cocoa, coffee, minerals, and warm spice. On the palate, cherry, tart berry, strawberry, vanilla, baking spices, minerals, turning to jammy fruit and very long finish and a very long finish of the same flavors. Medium to full body, with a rather rich mouthfeel. Nice acidity that gives this wine a freshness and makes the fruit pop, together with a nice presence of tannins. $45 from B-21. Revisited later with food and started getting notes of coffee and chocolate.
