Winemaker's Description: Purple-garnet in color. Aromas of cherry pie along with floral rose and oaky nutmeg and cocoa notes. Leading flavors are tight, framed by lean tannins wrapped with medium bodied red-fruited raspberry and pomegranate characters along with complex, oaky vanilla and spice. The long finish is carried by a clean acid backbone.
