The wine is brick red in color with soft violet hues, medium in body and extract. A profound mix of aromas are present on the nose- bing cherry, raspberry, Dr. Pepper, cloves, cinnamon, truffles, mushrooms. The flavors are ripe and powerful but very elegant- black cherry, vanilla, red currants, mushrooms, forest floor, allspice, and raspberry all come to mind. The alcohol comes in at 14.9%, but the wine doesn't suffer for it. It has a tart and vibrant acidity and tannins that are silky. The wine drinks with a luxurious feel in the mouth. The finish is long with plenty more red fruit and spice.
