Dark, deep ruby color. Aromas of buttered toast and sweet plum with hints of cigar, leather, vanilla and graham cracker. On the palate are flavors of leather, sweet cherry, smoke and graham cracker. This is a full bodied wine with well integrated but readily apparent tannins that linger on the long finish. A nicely balanced wine with enough acid and tannin to make this a more serious, longer lived wine that will go well with full-flavored food.
