Tasting Notes

Beautiful red/purple color with aromas of black cherries, fruits, dark chocolate and baker’s spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish. Don’t be concerned if you find yourself inhaling deeply from your glass, over and over—it is just your nose’s way of telling you that it wants its fair share! This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends. Goes great with many foods, specially meat, barbecue.
