The wine is dark ruby at its core, with a medium ruby rim. Boysenberry, earl grey tea, and cloves are apparent on the nose, and as the wine opens up, more fruit appears, with predominantly bing cherry notes, followed by coffee grounds and slight mocha. The medium bodied, silky wine boasts dark fruits and black currants with notes of pure cocoa and cedar. The tannins are medium plus and are in balance with the weight of the wine. The wine also has great acidity, which makes it an excellent food wine. The finish is beautiful, with loads of cassis and cedar.
