WineO Mark Review

This wine has a dark ruby color in the glass that’s very aromatic with notes of black fruits, oak, vanilla, and pepper. 

The texture is incredibly smooth, full-bodied, and has medium silky tannins. On the palate, there are flavors of blackberries, cherries, and oak. It finishes with hints of vanilla and espresso and has a nice long finish as well.
