  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    An exceedingly light ruby colored wine whose profundity is not revealed in its depth of color, this beautiful creation is a stunning revelation for those who imagine intensity comes with depth of color extraction. Notes of black cherry, roses, and a subtle touch of leather on the nose, bright balanced red fruits and taught acidity in the mouth. Long finish with rounded tannins.
