Blackberry, cherry, and dark plum flavors abound in this solid, energetic wine. The extended barrel aging is apparent with the hints of vanilla, tobacco, coffee and its gentle tannic structure. While full, plump, and weighty, there is a beam of core acidity that gives the wine energy with a long, smoky finish shaped by smooth, even tannins.

Primary fermentation in stainless steel followed by malolactic in concrete and 18 months aging in French & American oak.
