Sku: 14029

A medium-bodied wine with just a hint of oak but bursts with flavors of cherries and plums. It is rich in the mouth and ends with a soft, fruit filled finish.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points (May 2011)
Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011Finalist. The nose is wonderfully complex with layers of violets with ripe cherry and raspberry notes with accents of chocolate and cola. The palate echoes the nose delivering a silky and beautifully proportioned wine with depth and style. Ideally balanced with soft tannins.

Wine maker notes
Aromas are pretty and intense, with a palate of red cherry and berry fruits, and chewy tannins with excellent structure and concentration.
