Complex and elegant aromatics of black cherry and ripe strawberries are complimented by nuances of cola, vanilla, and dusty cocoa. The palate is loaded with intense candied fruit composed of fleshy plums and ripe red berries. The mid-palate features darker fruit that give way to hints of caramel and roasted almonds with well-rounded tannins and firm acidity. Throughout the long, smooth finish, notes of wet stone, dried flowers, and classic Rutherford dust make this wine the perfect candidate to age gracefully over time.
