This wine is wonderfully dark. It provides a sense of mystery and requires a little patience. Layers of black berries, exotic spice, dark earth, vanilla and pine, weave together to create a tremendous wine. For the lovers of structure and depth, this wine brings it all. Dense, sweet tannins frame a core of very fresh pure fruits that are just beginning to show. The finish is long; cocoa powder, Refugio dust and late summer berry patch. Delicious.
