This wine has black cherry and cassis aromas that briefly go the way of tomato, then fade into a pretty, white-peppery note. On the palate, cool, black cherry fruit is juicy and couched in textured tannins. 100,000 cases produced. Imported by De Bortoli Wines USA Inc.
The aromas give a distinctly dessert-like impression: Think blackberry pie filling, cherry sorbet. Confected raspberry and black cherry flavors follow on the palate. With air, takes on a hint of weediness on both nose and palate.
