"Perfumed in smoky oak, this 100% varietal wine is nuanced and well rounded. Expressive in dark, brooding flavors of baked cherry and cedar, it has persistent, gritty texture that impresses through the spicy, peppery end."
Tons of clove, wild cherry, vanilla bean, and caramlized figs entice the nose. Great acidity on the palate with flavors of freshly cracked black pepper, cassis, boysenberry, spiced rum and a lingering finish. The herbaceous notes will make this wine pair delightfully with barbecued fare.
