Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. This wine was evaluated over a day’s time, requiring the additional time to achieve expression. Welcoming aromas of black cherry, dried rose petal, spice, toasted hazelnuts, and sandalwood. Impressive attack and finishing intensity of black cherry cola flavor with hints of spice and toast. A sophisticated wine with well-managed fine grain tannins and the structure and balance to satisfy for years to come. The finish is striking in length. This wine is only hinting at its full potential now and deserves more time in bottle.
