Tasting Notes

This beautifully poised 2019 vintage shows subtle aromas of dark Belgian chocolate, hints of Turkish Delight and cherry plums. These delectable aromas carry through onto a smooth, velvety palate supported by layers of well-rounded tannins. This wine is completed with a light oak presence on the nose.
