Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Bright Ruby with fresh red fruit aromas and a touch of oak and spice. Aged for 24 months, 50% American oak, 50% French oak, plus 3 years in the bottle before release. On the palate cherry and blueberry with pepper, tobacco and cacao spice with lively acidity and good balance. Fine soft tannins, medium finish ending with toasty oaky spice character. Nice value!

Dark black and blue fruits dominate. Hints of leather, dried rose petals, dark chocolate and tobacco. Rich and full bodied. Smooth tannins.
