"Inky garnet in the glass, this wine from the foothills of the Himalayas offers a bouquet of dark plum, cassis and pipe tobacco. It opens on the palate with bright flavors of blackberry, black cherry and blood orange that slowly back off to reveal sophisticated notes of cacao, anise and shaved truffle. As firm tannins fade, bold fruit returns to the palate for a finish that is marked by a touch of eucalyptus. Drink now through 2028."
