Deep garnet in color with pleasing aromas of sun-warmed blueberry, blackberry pie, and black cherry with hints of forest floor and cedar. There is an earthy cola tone on the palate with very effusive dark berry flavor layered with a touch of vanilla. Dynamic and focused this wine has refined tannins and a long-lasting finish. We aged the wine in 100% French oak (60% new) for up to nine months. After the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, we racked it twice before making the final blend.
