2011 Union

Hints of black cherry and smoke, plum and vanilla, raspberry and leather. The palate matches the nose with tastes of black cherry, raspberry, rhubarb, and plum enveloped in a layer of smoky vanilla. Firm tannins, a delicate, almost floral and aromatic lift, followed by an elegant, long finish.
