Vibrant ruby in color, this wine exudes a delightfully complex nose filled with rich red berry, ripe strawberry and red cherry fruit aromas that give way to hints of subtle spearmint leaf and fennel pollen. Opening with luscious raspberry and cherry pie flavors, the palate is elegant and mouthfilling, with hints of black licorice, ground cinnamon and vanilla bean. Fine tannins and hints of milk chocolate echo throughout the long, velvety finish.
