Garnet hue. Expressive aromas of black cherry, strawberry and tamarind, uplifted by redwood spice and citrus zest. As it evolves in the glass, characters of black tea, sweet tobacco and redwood spice become more prevalent. Balanced flavors of cassis and bing cherry are complimented by the elegant, smooth entry of this wine, framed with fine grained tannin and savory coastal notes. Evolving from more fruit-forward to herbal as it opens up, this wine lingers beautifully on the palate.
