Tart red cherries and cassis are flecked with ceder and Graham-cracker crumbs on this lush, velvety red blend. It's opulent on the palate with warm tones of cassis liqueur marked by cocoa and spice, but balanced with pert acidity. It's a regal wine that should continue to show well till at least 2018.
