Soft aromas of polished red cherry, licorice, red flowers and wet gravel show on the nose of this new offering from proprietor Cris Cherry. The core of dark-red fruits are lifted by carnation and rose flavors, with firm tannins and a light licorice pop on the finish.
Deep ruby. Spice-accented cherry and red berries on the perfumed nose, which acquires succulent herb and floral nuances with air. Smooth and appealingly sweet, offering juicy black raspberry, cherry and spice-cake flavors that show good depth and back-end lift.
