Tasting Notes:

A brilliant garnet color with complex nose of plum, cranberry, pepper, vanilla, and spiciness. The palate shows wonderful ripe red and black fruits with spices, nutmeg, vanilla, and earth. The fruit and tannins have aged beautifully, balanced by structured acidity. No further aging required, ready to drink now.
