The wine greets you with a transparent black cherry color core moving to a salmon pink rim. On the nose the wine offers aromas that are pronounced cinnamon spice and home-made cranberry sauce with a hint of pine forest. On the palate the wine is dry, medium-bodied with mouth-watering acidity. The flavors are a medium intensity of black cherry with a hint of cinnamon spice. The finish is clean with a long lingering length of black cherry and a surprising hint of bitter-sweet chocolate.
