Crimson color. Intense aromas of red and black fruit (dark cherries, plums) are layered with spicy notes of anise and clove. Concentrated flavors of dark plum and raspberry followed by a lush, full-bodied and bright acidity on the mid palate. The smooth, velvety tannins grant this wine a persistent, lingering finish.
