Stunning aromatics composed of blueberry, sarsaparilla, petunias, and chaparral invite you into this truly hedonistic wine. Flavors of dark chocolate, French roast, duck confit, and olive tapenade temper the exuberant fruit notes on the palate. The finish exhibits both richness and purity, showcasing an opulent mid-palate that is focused with tannins reminiscent of well-worn leather.
