Good depth of flavor and great structure make this wine appealing and complete. Smoky aromas of clove, cedar and black pepper lead to concentrated and rich black-cherry and red-cherry flavors on a moderately tannic texture.
Warm, inviting aromas of wild blueberry, clove, caramel, and forest floor rise from the glass. The palate is plush and layered, with roasted stem inclusion adding breadth and savory notes. Deep flavors of sassafras root and black cherry bring this wine to a full-bodied and balanced finish.
