Tasting Notes
Aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and red currants are interlaced with herbaceous aromas of marjoram, oregano and roasted peppers. This wine shows a generous red fruit character on the palate with juicy, mouthwatering acidity, followed by sweet vanilla, cassis and a lingering refreshing bitterness of roasted espresso.
