This wine is dark ruby red with a fine full nose of berries and spices. A full creamy mouthful of blueberries, fruit and spices with a well rounded full finish. A great wine for any steak.

Almost black in color, this aged wine has a lot to offer with a big nose of blackberry, boysenberry and tar. A full mouth of red fruits, cherry and blackberry coats the mouth with a long tart aftertaste.
