Red Hot Special for 2018 : Brilliant red with dark brick hues. With a fine mousse and persistent bead. Nose is sweet but earthy, with aromas of waffles and syrup, vanilla bean, blueberry, black berry. There is an obvious but fine cedar oak character. Palate is full soft and round. Juicy fruit and vanilla fill the mouth. It finishes long and dry with fine cedary oak tannin and crisp freshness.
