French oak maturation provides subtle, spicy aromatics.

violets, plums on the nose.....great balance with a long lasting finish
3 glasses. That's what I had. Wine good enough to enjoy, not so fabulous to be in awe of. Tasted just right with steak, with other food...just not so great that I would enjoy it for its own qualities.

Medium red. Musky plum and currant aromas, plus a whiff of roasted black raspberry. Sweet, fat and simple, with decent berry and plum fruit. Finishes a bit tart, but with easy tannins.
