Aromatic with ripe black cherry, black raspberry, and strawberry. Savory elements enhance the wine’s depth, with barrel spice, sweet tobacco, and a subtle touch of vanilla.


The medium-bodied and balanced palate introduces a medley of red plum, cranberry, and blackberry, followed by earthy tones reminiscent of fall leaves and chanterelle mushrooms, leading to a satisfying finish with lingering notes of cocoa and leather.
