Winemaker's Notes

Complex yet approachable, this lush, fruit-forward wine opens with floral aromas of fresh-picked black cherries, plum and toasted spice followed by notes of dark chocolate and hazelnut that make way for a silky, vanilla-crème finish. Barrel aged for 22 months in 85% new oak. Best served around 65F.
