Classic aromatics of the Russian River appellation meet you at first sniff. Bing cherry, cocoa, and cola blend with earthy notes and fresh cut wood to testify that this could come from no other appellation. There is an additional spicy note of Pennyroyal as well that comes from the flowers growing among the vines. It is lively on the palate with loads of cherry cola and ripe red fruits. You'll notice the tannins on the finish but these will soon soften to help make this a wine that luxuriates on the palate.
