Tasting Notes

"Sour cherries and green apple lead on the nose, along with vanilla, caramel, and oak. The palate showcases red wine with mulling spices, dark chocolate-covered cherries, butterscotch, and astringent oak. A spicy, moderately lengthy finish offers cinnamon, cloves, dry oak and cedar box, as well as pine needles and black pepper, with a background of semisweet baker's chocolate."
