WineO Mark Review

This wine has an intense deep ruby-red color on the glass. It has light toasted aromas from the oak and cedar followed by fruity flavors of plums, sweet cherries, blackberries, blueberries, and cassis with notes of lavender and vanilla.

On the palate, it has well-concentrated tannins and a perfect balance of acidity. This is a full-bodied wine that’s intense and lively on the palate and has a long finish. You can taste dark fruits such as blackberries, plums, blueberries, and currants with hints of vanilla, leather, toasted oak, and licorice.
