TASTING NOTES

Red colored wine with violet hues.  Red fruit aromas of raspberry and plumb combine with hints of black pepper. The mouth shows a velvety, fruit-forward and inviting wine due to its mature tannins. Its excellent acidity is favored by the freshness the Syrah offers leading to a mint and spice aftertaste.
