Kicks off with a blend of herbs, wild flowers, lavender and toasty oak. It's a fresh, clean, semirich RDD with beautiful berry fruit, chocolate and a slight bit of char. An exciting wine with delicious core flavors and no toughness, hard tannins or heat. A bit dark and bitter on the finish, like a good espresso. Drink now–2014.
