Opens with great aromatics of mountain blackberry and currant, with a hint of dark chocolate and earthiness on the nose, this wine explodes with intense flavors on the palate. From complex fruits ranging from blueberries, blackberries and a hint of pomegranate, this wine has a rich mid-palate that includes a touch of chocolate and spice that is very balanced and leads to a nice round finish.
