Description: At the edges, there is also a colour transition into garnet red. The nose of this red wine from California enchants with hints of blue and red fruits. If we trace the aromas further, sage, rosemary and black olive are added. This wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It has been bottled with exceptionally little residual sugar. This is a real quality wine, which clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this North American enchants of course with all dryness with the finest balance. Excellent taste does not necessarily need a lot of sugar. On the tongue, this powerful red wine is characterized by an incredibly dense and fleshy texture, aromas of black cherry, blueberry and cassis play on the palate. In the finish, this storable red wine from the wine-growing region of California finally inspires with beautiful length. There are hints of dark chocolate and espresso. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the slate-dominated soils join in.
