The nose is velvety with rich notes of cinnamon, anise, molasses, and blackberry jam. There are also hints of clove and just a pinch of black pepper. The palate is equally as silky and opens with delicate notes of cherry and ripe raspberry. The wine grows on the palate showing its breadth and beautiful core which leads into a rich blackberry compote finish, complemented but the soft, fine tannin structure.
This wine opens with high notes of cherry on the nose; the cinnamon, plum, cedar, chocolate, and clove all have strong supporting roles to please your olfactory and welcome you to this exquisite wine. Chocolate covered cherries and coffee beans light up your taste buds and the tannins finish with the consistency of a fine cocoa powder.
