This Whip Cracker could not be more opposite to its namesake, Soft, luscious fruits and velvety tannins make this wine very approachable now, or for short term cellaring. We recommend you get cracking and grab a case today.
Intense aromas of dark blackcurrants, ripe plums, chocolate, and white pepper. The palate is full of ripe fruit with the clever use of French and American oak providing smoky overtones and coffee nuances. A fruit forward yet elegant wine.
