Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

Deep, dense and plush, the 2020 SLAM DUNK is inky black in color and filled with aromas of dark plum, violet, shaved cocoa and black pepper. The mouthfeel is packed with sweet black cherry, cinnamon, and espresso. Long and persistent on the finish, the wine shows rich, polished tannins and an opulent core of soft
vanilla oak.
