From first glance, notice the wonderful "tawny" color, a blend of brick red, deep orange and vibrant garnet colors. This warm expression presents in the aromas filled with nutty notes of hazelnut, toasted almonds, and chestnuts. The very ripe and rich essences of currant and blueberry extract are complimented by notes of fresh cedar and leather. The elegance of this wine really shows through on the palate where the silky sweet expression of Napa Valley fruit integrates perfectly with the warmth and richness provided by the brandy fortification. Truly seamless from entry to finish.
