The wine hints of sweet basil and other summer herbs on the nose. Swiftly followed by a rich and round entry of black cherries and ripe plums, the silky fruit embraces the palate. Soft yet enveloping tannins finish the wine with touches of roasted cocoa and toasty oak from 10 months of aging in American oak barrels.
