This show stopper calls for a round of applause and begs an encore with 30% Pinot Noir, 15% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 15% Cab Franc, 10% Petite Syrah. The aroma is beautiful with notes of sweet red licorice, Italian herbs and black pepper. This full-bodied crowd-pleaser presents notes of black cherry jam, tobacco and maple walnut ice cream on the palate. The finish is notably silky, yet layered with a lingering velvet tannins.
