The appearance of this wine in the glass is hard to ignore. Vibrant and medium- to full-bodied, with the dark ruby/magenta hue maintaining its depth of color to the rim. The color is reminiscent of dark Bing cherry. The aroma delivers layers of dark cherry, plum, dried herbs, licorice and dusty earth. Flavors sing notes of rhubarb, black cherry jam, blueberry, light plum, leather, tobacco and mincemeat. The texture is supple and approachable. The finish is a smooth and well-balanced, with medium acidity and tannins.
