Playful and dark, this deep purple wine beckons to you with lively aromas of black plum, black cherry, and confectioner’s sugar. Notes of gingersnap, cola, and vanilla bean add to the allure, while the palate coats the mouth with plum, raspberry jam, and subtle notes of clove. A succulent wine with a round and juicy finish.

"Opaque black ruby color. Herbal, spicy aromas and flavors of spicy pickle, berry compote, and smoked peppercorns with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, involved, medium-length roasted root vegetables, mulberries, vanilla nuts, and coconut finish with crunchy, dusty tannins. A rich, savory, dry red wine with a nice combination of old and new world qualities that will shine at the table." — Tastings.com
