A dark, meaty, sappy wine, supple and saturated with gorgeous color and sensuous fruit. The spices are chromatic, and the flavors include charcuterie, wild cherry, smoke, pepper and green tea. The palate is seamless and tightly wrapped, gently unfolding to reveal a lingering finish with the promise of a long cellar life ahead.
