Made by Elias Fernandez in partnership with Doug Shafer, this red totally rocks in smoky toasted oak and a tease of char. Intense and electrifying, it offers rich layers of dark cherry, clove and dried herb. It's bulky and substantial while preserving a sense of grace, with a backbone of supportive refreshing acidity.
