This super Tuscan styled blend has a nose of black cherry, desert herbs and leather. Blackberry and sun dried cherry follow interlaced with fine tannins which are well intergrated with the fruit. The finish is generous with mineral and dusty tannins that linger on the palatte. the grapes for this wine grown in volcanic and alluvial soils are truly expressive of the Arizonan desert terroir. A beautiful and well balanced wine.
