Ripe strawberries, invites one into the glass. A mixture of red and black berries awaits with a whiff of pencil shavings promising a great wine. Ripe red cherries at first with spices in the background. Delicate notes of oak and pencil shavings with cassis and red fruit completes the rich palate. Gripping tannins on the mid palate with lingering ripe fruit and great balance on the after taste.
