Tasting Notes: A deep purplish red, this wine is rich on both the nose and the palate. Scents of lush dark plums mix with candle spice, saddle leather, floral notes and cocoa baking powder. A sweet smokiness calls to mind the smell of a campfire burning in the woods. The palate starts off smooth and continually expands, with earthy flavors of oak. Gritty, finely textured tannins build all the way through the finish, which lingers with notes of bittersweet chocolate and ripe berries.
