The Dardis designate is a mix of Wädenswil and Dijon 115 clones, aged for 10 months in 30% new French oak. Cherry, berry and chocolate flavors meld gracefully with a thread of cola. There's a briary undertone to the fruit, and a dusting of cocoa over the tannins. This is ready to enjoy immediately.
