- Aromas: Pronounced layers of dried cherry, dried fig, dried oregano, leather, cinnamon, clove, berry pie crust and coffee.
- Flavors/experience: Medium ruby hue. A full-bodied wine. Baked red cherry, sour cherry, tart blackberry, white pepper, toffee and cola. Medium-long finish with lingering, complex savory bitter and saline notes. A striking similarity in presentation (aromas, flavors, and body) to an Amarone. Very good quality.
