Wine Spectator 90
Rich and toothsome, with interesting dried herbal notes to the red plum and toffee flavors. The juicy finish is filled with spicy accents. Drink now. 600 cases imported
Light brick red, with an amber hue. On the nose, rich red fruit, notes of caramel, raisins, and cloves. On the palate, cardamom, spice, butterscotch and elegant redcurrant, interwoven with attractive nutty aromas. Smooth and round on the palate, full of luscious strawberry jam flavors with an elegant finish. ~ Winery notes
