"You’ll like this wine for its easy drinkability. The texture is soft and luscious, with rich, fine tannins. Flavors of black currants, mocha and sweet spices entice the palate. Shows complexity and finesse throughout."

"Graceful, with fine balance to the currant, cherry, and roasted herb nuances. Toasty oak, olive and modest tannins."
