Tasting Notes Tthe 2017 Secret Indulgence Resurrection opens with aromas of crème de cassis, tobacco and earthy notes. This is a full-bodied wine with elegantly balanced flavors of blackberry, Bing cherry and raspberry with a touch of hazelnut and dried violets. The rich texture and structured tannins are followed by a great and powerful finish that lingers.
