Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Fruit forward and earthy on both the nose and the palate, Old World elements abound in this inky, ruby red. Stewed cherries and baked plums harmonize with anise and black pepper to create a balanced expression, with soft tannins on the smooth finish.
