Here's a full-bodied, succulent wine with a sunny character that opens with aromas of perfumed berry, blue flower and a hint of cake spice. The smooth, structured palate doles out juicy dark cherry, crushed plum and a hint of mocha alongside velvety tannins. This is already enjoyable but will age well for several years.
