Feeling a little Randy today?
Classic medium yet electric hue pours into glass. Dark floral fruit aromas lift out of glass and into nose. Spice, toast and more fruit follows. Fresh plum, ripe black raspberry and cassis fills the mouth. This is a well-balanced wine with a weighted mouthfeel yet juicy elegance lingers after the wine is swallowed.
