This celebratory Red Blend boasts aromas of fresh fig, cranberry with hints of pomegranate, and a whiff of new tobacco leaf that sit alongside layered, rich flavors of berries on the palate. The palate is full of complexity, leading into a sweet and savory finish with hints of black pepper and spice that give way to a balanced tannin structure and a touch of acidity.
