Dark ruby in color, the fruit in the aroma is black cherry, blueberry, and red raspberry. The bright fruit is complimented with dark chocolate, black pepper, forest floor, aromatic cedar, and leather notes. The oak spice is fairly integrated, adding to the overall complexity. The texture on the palate has a smooth entry, with dark cherry flavor. The tannins are well resolved, yet promise the ability for long aging. The fruit acidity provides a very pleasant long finish.
