Tasting

Deep ruby color. Complex earthy notes combine with rich raspberry compote, aniseed and charcuterie on the bouquet. Lingering in the background is a hint of smoky cedar. Dense, rich fruit flavors of raspberry, blackberry and plum coat the palate initially before savory black olive leads into soft, fine-grained and lengthy tannins to finish.
