WineO Mark Review

Deep garnet-purple color on the glass. This wine is very aromatic and has dense dark fruit flavors of blackberry, black cherry, plum, and blueberry. There are hints of vanilla, and tobacco on the nose.

It’s full-bodied, has layering complexity, and fine tannins, with a great freshness to it.

There are fruit flavors of blueberry, black currant, plums, and cherry upfront. This is then followed by nutmeg, oak, toasted spices, and a hint of cinnamon creating an impressive finish.

Built to age! Overall the wine is very aromatic, velvety smooth, juicy flavors, with chewy tannins. You can drink it now, but the taste will be better ten years from now.
