It's a shame only one barrel was made of this wine from Glenrose Vineyard, for it's a lavish and delicious wine. Aromas of coffee, espresso and dark chocolate meet with black cherry, lilacs and caramel on the nose. Deep yet bright black-currant fruit shows on the sip, along with zesty blood orange before finishing on the richer coffee-cream notes.
