Winemaker Comments:



Color: Deep purple/red with purple hues at rim
Nose: Stylish, Youthful and varietally defined. Dark berry fruit with a suggestion of mint, vanilla oak, plum and chocolate aromas.
Palate: Fleshy blackcurrant/redcurrant, hints of chocolate and mint.
Soft tannins are caught in the generous fruit rush, with spice and nutmeg flavors offering additional distractions.
The Vanilla oak is all but soaked up by the fruit, with a rich mid-palate and a lingering Finish.
