Varietal Notes

Tasting Notes

Equal parts savory herb, baking spice and ripe fruit on the nose with hints of dried tarragon, red cherry, espresso and vanilla. Inviting on the fore palate with fruit and dried herb leading to a round soft mid palate dominated by rich, chewy tannins and bright red fruit. A long, clean finish showcasing the wine's complexity and rich tannins invites another sip.
