Rich, dark berry fruit aromas are complimented on the nose by notes of cinnamon, allspice, cloves, toast and dry earth. Aromas of cedar arise in the back end. It is structured and elegant. Soft tannins provide body without a lot of weight. A long wine, plump and satiny, flavors of dark red fruit and dusty earth are framed by medium-light acidity. An extremely elegant and balanced wine, truly delicious.
