This six-grape blend is led by Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of toasty, rooty berry fruits come with an essence of cola. The palate is layered and mellow, offering mild tannins. An oaky flavor profile includes coconut and vanilla, while the finish is spicy, mildly herbal and a touch chocolaty.”

“Bright violet color. Vibrant aromas of black raspberry, fresh flowers and peppery spices, with hints of licorice and cola in the background. Ripe and fleshy yet lively, offering intense red and dark berry flavors that stretch out and gain sweetness with aeration. Fine-grained tannins provide grip to the finish, which hangs on with strong fruit-driven tenacity.”

Dried berry and tarry notes fill this fresh-tasting red. Very firm midpalate, shaded by plenty of green herb and forest floor details. Slate accents emerge on the finish. Drink now. 1,000 cases imported.

Must, red-black  fruit  and mild herbal aromas.  This is a big wine, with lots of ripe black cherry and plum fruit leading to well-integrated tannins.  This is a good value.
