Mr. Wonderful's Notes
Aromas of dark berries, acai, dark chocolate and beautiful dark components evolve into dried violets and dried herbs. On the palate red cherry explodes with chocolate hues that is well integrated with notes of herbal spices and savory mole. The finish has notes of French oak and gripping tannins.Taste
