Scents leads to tastes of fig compote, blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry caramelized in cinnamon and molasses with enticing balance of tannins and spice. This wine reveals more and more with each mouthful.
Lush and smooth this cool climate Tempranillo leads with hints of citrus, followed by plum, blackberry, leathery sun-dried tomatoes, and faint rumors of tobacco.
