On the nose black cherries, currants, blackberries, plums and raspberries. Other flavors follow with hints of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, white pepper and vanilla. On the palate the wine is crisp, with mouth-watering acidity. The soft tannins add a nice velvet texture moving from front to back. Dark fruits are abundant, chocolate covered cherries, caramelized figs, and cedar box. This wine is young and can age for some time if you want to cellar it.
