Rich, ruby red in color. On the nose, ripe raspberries and clove, are mingled with a hint of sweet, new French oak and sagebrush. There’s an intriguing note of crushed spices and pomegranate as well. On the palate, red raspberry and cherry fruits dominate but crisp pomegranate and cranberry are present too as well as more of that spicy clove character. The wine finishes dry and fresh and will certainly benefit from a few years in a cool cellar.
