Flavor Profile

Brilliant dark ruby color. An early harvest but with a perfect balance of sugar, flavor and tannin maturities. Aromas of toasted vanilla, cassis and spice are very concentrated and very dominant. On the palate the wine explodes with fruit (cassis and blackberry) and concentrated flavors. Classic flavors of cassis dominate with a rich and round vanilla/spice quality. This wine is rich and silky with elegant tannins and a long, long finish.
