A powerful nose of cranberry, raspberry, ripe cherry and sugared orange peel. The palate even at the very first sip has a bright acidity that balances the savory and sweet flavors. The palate is filled with flavors of wild strawberry, clove, mocha, hints of violet, damp forest floor and spice. A medium bodied wine with youthful tannins that hold everything together. 20% New French Oak 80% Neutral for 18 months.
