Description
Winemaker Marcia Torres Forno is a gifted aromatics specialist, and you’re in for a treat with the nose on this red blend. Dark cherry jam, cocoa, fresh Sarsaparilla (aka, root beer), hints of licorice and dried rose petals lift from the glass. Those notes repeat on the palate, accompanied by pomegranate and blood orange fruit. Fine grain tannins make for smooth sipping and lead to long, elegant finish.
