This is a rich and structured wine from Heifara Swatvagher. With wood aging giving the wine its toasty, spicy character, it is ripe and perfumed with black plum flavors and fresh with black currant acidity. The wine is only just beginning to be ready to drink and will certainly be better from 2018.
