Mr. Hoefliger’s Tasting Notes:
Color: Deep dark cranberry with hints of velvety red and purple
On the nose: Explosion of fruit like strawberries, cassis with touches of spices like basil, tarragon, tomato sauce lingering on Vanilla, cherry and pumpkin bread
On the palate: Soft velvety entrance evolving on tannins with soft dense fruit like black cherries, boysenberries lingering on plums, lavender and lilac.
