Aromas of jam berry and cherry follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine yet round tannins and a long chocolate and berry aftertaste. Loads of sweet fruit here. Exciting stuff. This small producer makes fine wines... Aromas of jam berry and cherry follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine yet round tannins and a long chocolate and berry aftertaste.
