Tasting Note:December 1, 2018

Dark purplish ruby red. Layered and deep nose with tons of herbs, perfume, anise, and dark fruits. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Rich and powerful finish with tons of strawberry jam, black fruit, spices and herbs. All around fantastic. Long and killer finish.
