Tasting notes: Dark, deep ruby color. Aromas of fresh plum, raspberry, cocoa powder, cinnamon and cloves and a touch of dried herbs and smoke. Bursting with bright berry flavors, vanilla cream, cocoa and cinnamon. The mid-palate and finish are lush and full but with just the right balance of tartness and astringency. Well integrated tannins that linger on the long finish. 65% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah.
