Description: The nose on this organic wine has elements of spicy stewed fruit with a hint of vanilla. Spice, oak, tobacco and blackberry are well integrated on the palate. A note of pomegranate tops this off giving it great balance. The finish is dry and lingering. Decanting for 20 minutes brings out a thick and rich mouth feel.
