Tasting Notes
Remember that jewelry box your grandfather carved for you out of spicey cedar wood? Cracking open this wine is like cracking open that little wood box, and all the aromatic jewels sparkling away inside, like little firecrackers. On the palette you’ll find blackberry, coffee, dark chocolate and a rich, velvety mouth feel. My grandfather was never one for piercings, but I know he’d recommend decorating your tongue with this wine!
