Deep ruby to the eye, this wine has a nose of dark plum, bramble fruit and thyme. A sense of brightness is ever-present on the palate, with flavors of cherry, cassis, butterscotch, fennel and white pepper. Smooth tannins play on the tongue and then linger just beyond the black-cherry finish, with a touch of caramel.
