Dark ruby in color, the aroma has boysenberry and dried cranberry notes. The nose is complex with nuances of aromatic cedar, dusty forest floor and dark chocolate brownie dusted with cocoa powder. The sweet oak spice is prominent yet integrated with the flavors. The flavor is big, voluptuous, and elegant, with rich great depth of dark cherry and Santa Rosa plum. With balanced acidity, good body and texture, the tannins are well resolved, providing a very long fruitful finish.
