Red Wine
Description

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.
