Crocodile

Red Wine
Description

Like the elusive crocodile, in all its DEVIOUS scheming, this FEISTY and intricate red wine will swiftly seize your senses with all its might… causing you, its prey, to become unexpectedly RAVENOUS for more… until the hunted becomes the hunter.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Sandalwood, Blackberry and Nutmeg greet you on the nose.

Palate: 

 The Rutherford dust dances across your palate, with notes of dark cherry, chocolate and hints of cedar, rose petal and black tea. Bright acidity on the front of the palate leads to restrained power and a long lingering finish.
