Tasting Notes
This wine swings with the full bodied and muscular right hook of Muhammad Ali and smells better too! On the nose you’ll find mint, berries, and a pretty whiff of oak perfume. The “Rumble in the jungle” taste of black pepper, charcoal and cranberry will send a serious left to your palette, especially after a little bottle ageing. The Espresso finish is an undisputed knock out!
