Dusty violet color. Elegant aromas of ripe cherries, polished leather furniture, smoked black tea, and cedar with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an even, interesting, medium-length blueberry-pomegranate sorbet and peppercorns finish with well-integrated, medium tannins and light oak flavor. A sophisticated take on GSM to delight your guests.
