    May 19, 2014 - This was a very nice wine. Purple and opaque right to the edge of the glass; I'm left to wonder if a little petit verdot might have made it into the mix. The nose is dominated by floral notes. The palate adds dark fruit, chocolate and mocha. The finish is medium in duration and features sour cherries. 5+13+16+8=92
